I just couldn’t let this die.
Ladies and gents, esteemed Terry* readers, and internet goers directed here via Google: I invite all of you to take part in the fourth installment of Terry*’s Sunday Obscure Science Picture Caption Contest.
Here’s the deal – The New Yorker has a weekly cartoon caption contest where readers send in their own cartoon captions to a provided cartoon. The editors then choose three to be voted on by their readership. Given the often intriguing, historically significant, or just plain hilarious/bizarre nature of many old photographs with scientific content, I thought to myself, “Why the hell not do the same on Terry*?”
This installment features a rather large rocket – be sure to leave your witty, sciencetific comments below.
