Paul Allen’s 250-ton Stratolaunch
Yet driven by Allen’s passion for space and science fiction and funded by the billionaire — courtesy of co-founding Microsoft more than 40 years ago — construction of the airframe is complete and the Roc has finally emerged to the light of day.[reference article below] ___________________________________________________________________________________
Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore stand in awe of God. (Ecclesiastes 5:7)
Yet driven by Allen’s passion for space and science fiction and funded by the billionaire — courtesy of co-founding Microsoft more than 40 years ago —
I undertook great projects:
I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house.
I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem as well-the delights of the heart of man. I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.
I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor.
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 2:4-11)
