My Deep Impact/Little Prince crossover fanfic has been poorly received by the community.

I think that is because nobody wants to believe NASA would design the spacecraft upside-down.

Wouldn't the Little Prince be killed by the impact anyway? 00:30, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes if NASA did nothing he would also die. But would you be happy seeing a movie where we choose a solution that saves us and kills the little prince? Could they not have deflected the asteroid instead? ;-) --Kynde (talk) 09:46, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

That one question in What If 2 about the earth spinning like a basketball could be a reference to this comic. (asteroid with the little prince colliding with earth.) IJustWantToEditStuff (talk) 07:01, 29 January 2023 (UTC)

that rocket looks like the artemis sls TenGolf MathHacker (talk) 19:18, 22 March 2023 (UTC)

It also looks very like several other twin-boostered rockets, real and fictional, because it does the kind of job necessary. More likely convergent evolution than true prognostication of how SLS would actually ended up. Even with his NASA background and connections.
But interesting that he landed on a heavy-launch (or beyond-orbit, in this case) design that is still considered valid. There could easily have been a paradigm shift betwixt then and now, rendering that a strictly old-school design (even given the development lead-time at which a design gets all but frozen in). 01:11, 23 March 2023 (UTC)
