Compare Sci-Fi and reality

I love how close the Starhopper looks to 1950’s sci-fi dreams of the future. Pretty close really! I guess the 1950’s guys imagined their rocket landing a bit like a space-plane, and hence the larger wings. They probably couldn’t imagine micro-processors smart and fast enough to automatically correct multiple rocket engines to land this beast vertically!
