The Space Race

Some bright engineers
spent two or three years,
perfecting a tool, that would write
upside down, in a rocket,
it cost them a packet,
to finally get the thing right.

Their rivals in space,
well behind in the race,
soon put this problem to bed,
did an excellent job
at a cost of two bob,
by using a pencil instead.

  1. πŸ˜‚. Have heard that. Those Russians! Very topical. We just watched Apollo 11 with our son tonight. It’s a great compilation of footage. Really makes me think about the enormity of what they achieved in 1969.
