OMG someone built* a flying vul...

*actually they didn't :cry: , but I did wanteded title simmetry with elawie's thread :oops: .

Linky with full article and renders. It does look cooler than regular rockets.
A German feminist art group has revealed a vulva-shaped spaceship concept, which it is encouraging the European Space Agency to help realise in order to better represent humanity in space and "restore gender equality to the cosmos."
(...)
The Vulva Spaceship was designed to counter the predominance of phallus-shaped space imagery
WBF? argues that as well as being symbolically inclusive, the ship would be "surprisingly aerodynamic" because the V-shape creates little drag as the craft leaves Earth's atmosphere – proving that there is room for non-phallic shapes in space.
(...)
The group has also been sharing historical facts about women in space travel with the hashtag #spaceisforeveryone and adopted the tagline "It's time for new symbols in space".
(...)
Although most spacecraft have an elongated shape, another recent alternative is space tourism company Space Perspective's Spaceship Neptune, which uses a bulbous, onion-shaped balloon.

Interesting design for a craft, but I hear that the difficulty of finding the "launch" button is problematic.
