To the Mooooooon!

My day is made.  Top of the pile of the new* books:  Space Mission Analysis and Design.  Oh my mind off instantly designing space craft, and shall we stop at the moon?  Never.  Out, out into the inky blackness white with stars, and possibilities.  Wide wings on our craft to catch the wind of stars and glide in graceful circles round the moons of Jupiter, slip with elegance between the many shapes of the Kuiper Belt and out to dive into the darkest matter and mystery of the universe.

*Apparently a prof ordered it.  It is from 1999.  But hey, we can still go.
