    You are free to develop a vagina-shaped rocket if you want to.

    I can definitely guarantee that you get all the science prizes in the world if you manage such a feat.

    Anyhow, stupid thread.

    Ditto to arildno's last sentence.

    Huh. I never thought about it, but I guess rockets are phallic. Go figure.

    Coincidence, probably. I doubt that the guy who invented rockets was sitting around and said "let's make it look like a penis". Of course, you never know...
