If we're going to get that deep we have to include Royal Enfield, but I imagine India has built way more of them than England ever did.

They got to hang out with first of only 12 people to ever set foot on the moon. I can only imagine how I would have felt being a kid and launching rockets with him.

Those 27 Merlins are only eclipsed by 8 H-1's and 5 F-1's in cool factor! One could even argue for the 27 over the 8, but there's something about 4 surrounded by 4 that really looks good to me. Too...

I'm so looking forward to the BFR. I hope it flies before I'm too blind and senile (or dead) to enjoy it. The F9H, while considerably more powerful than the Saturn 1B, isn't quite as cool, but it's...
