I just had to post the following email I received about this lamp! Below the photo, I’ve reprinted the info from my Etsy listing.
Several questions: what does the base look like?
Does the propeller really turn?
If it blasts off, will the whole lamp go, or just the lamphead?
Before that event, does it cast enough light to read by?
It has (will have) a powerful rocket to escape the Earth’s atmosphere, and a solar powered propeller (fan) to move it along once it’s in space. I’ll admit there are still some details to be worked out, but that’s why I’m seeking a few discerning (and rich) investors to assist in bringing this amazing project to fruition. For now, I’m selling these rare models to raise ‘seed money’ for this endeavor. Can you just imagine what these models will be worth ten or fifteen years from now?!
