Ray Gun Gothic Rocket at Burning Man

Rocket Science

If there was one piece of artwork that dominated conversation this year it was “Raygun Gothic Rocketship,” a kitschy, retro-futuristic 40-foot rocket that looked like something out of a Jules Verne movie adaptation circa 1957. The excitement about the piece was centered on its scheduled “launch” set for Friday night. Debate about this “rocket launch” raged throughout BRC:

“It’s a joke. There’s no way they’re getting that thing off the ground.”

“I heard they’re only hoping to get it up four or five feet.”

“If they actually try to launch that thing, I’m sure it’ll fail miserably.”

“They’re probably just going to blow it up.”

“Well, whatever happens, I’m sure it’ll be cool.”
