Spaceboy, I miss you

A space suit is made out of a flight suit, a Goodrich tire, a bra, a girdle, a raincoat, a tomato worm. An American rocket ship is made out of a nuclear weapon, and a German ballistic missile; a “space program” — a new organization with new goals — is made out of preexisting military, scholarly, and industrial institutions and techniques.

— Nicholas de Monchaux, Spacesuit
