This is really just a playful kind of theory of mine. It goes roughly like this: you can tell how good humans are at something by how something looks. Take cars for example: early in their construction they were purely functional. Now they are rolling works of art. Airplanes are finally (thanks primarily, I think, to Burt Rutan) becoming artful in their design. Eventually I think spaceships will too.
Remember the old streamliner trains? Lovely things, those.
Anyway just a little thought I had about things. how long before spaceships become interplanetary Ferraris?
