Science: Ezekiel’s Spaceships - Poem by Margaret Alice

The very next day Alice happened to meet
a NASA Engineer, Mr Blumrich, who told her
all about Ezekiel’s Spaceships: The spacecraft
had a central main body supported by four
helicopters; a crew capsule on the upper
side – in humming-top shape – a quasi-conical
lower portion to meet high-drag aerodynamic
requirements; with a rocket engine, plug
nozzle, reactor, and radiator; propellant tank
and propellant; a central power plant for
helicopters and additional units; an environment
control system and unit of reliquefaction…
Alice did not understand much; but she
knew enough of Ezekiel in the Old Testament
to realize that the four living beings must
be the helicopters - and the wheel within
a wheel must be the spinning top; she was
delighted with what Mr Blumrich taught!
