Rock art or rockets?

Or perhaps it should be rock art AND rockets. This is a title for a paper that we came up with, late one night after too many champagnes in the earlier part of last year. The illustrious Dr Alistair Pike was present and complicit. I was filing some papers and came across a sheet of scrap paper covered in scribbled notes from this long-ago evening, which also included the proposed title of Alistair's autobiography: "Vermin and physics".

But "Rock art or rockets" may become nicely relevant this year, as I am in discussions with Mr Phil Czwerwinski, who knows this area well, about doing something with both out at Woomera.

  1. Also on this bit of paper was written: "Invent Flann O'Brien - food". Completely mystifying. And then it struck me: the note was about devising a flan or tart that would be called Flan O'Brien. It might have to have two birds in it. Or Guinness, possibly.

    It's not the worst idea in the world.
