Large static rocket display planned for Burning Man

If you attend Burning Man 2009, you will be cable to climb the 25' gantry and cross a 10' walkway into the 42', aluminum, 1940's retro-style Raygun Gothic Rocketship. (Cue the sound of the LP scratching to a sound like you may go into the ship and down the gantry...ooops.) Inside you can explore the armory, biosciences lab, and engine room. The engine room will feature six 'power cells' complete with a 12KV lightning effect. This rocket may not launch, but it still sounds cool. (from cnet's geek gestalt via Clark Lindsey)
