A bunch of rocks The surface of Titan. So you give someone an inch and they want a yard. Given them a rocket ship and suddenly they want a star ship.
SF writers want to use exotic settings on alien planets, but the real estate in our solar system mostly looks like a bunch of rocks. I know that those spoil-sports at NASA have ruined our solar system for SF writers since their nosy space probes failed to find dinosaur-infested jungles of Venus and scantily-clad Martian princesses.
But they haven't sent probes to other stars yet!
Why not turn my rocket ship into a star ship? The basic problem is that interstellar distances are freaking huge.
The introduction begins like this: You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space. At an ordinary speed — say, a reasonable pace for a car in a megalopolitan traffic, two kilometers per minute — you would consume almost nine million years in crossing it.
And in Sol's neighborhood, the stars averaged some nine light-years apart. Beta Virginis was thirty-two distant. There is a glowing dot for the Sun, and one millimeter away is a microscopic speck representing the Earth. Imagine this ten-centimeter model floating above your palm.
This would put Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Sun, at about meters away. That's feet, the length of about two and a half football fields or four and a half New York city blocks!
Glance at the ten-centimeter solar system in your hand, then contemplate the nearest solar system four and a half city blocks away.
And the center of the galaxy would be about kilometers away about mileswhich is a bit more than the distance from Chicago, Illinois to Houston, Texas. How long do you think it is going to take to travel such distances?
As an example, the Voyager 1 space probe is currently the fastest human made object with a rest mass, zipping along at a blazing This means that in the space of an eyeblink the little speed demon travels a whopping eleven miles!9 letter words whose second letter is E.

I think it is possible to outline a list of features that are typical of what I would like to call Ur-Fascism, or Eternal Fascism.
These features cannot be organized into a . The all-girl Lizzies use their feminine wiles to coax three of The Warriors back to their pad near Union Square, and come closer than any other gang to capturing—and killing—the titular crew.
