The Official NASA Rocket Lava Lamp: Ready for Liftoff

A NASA rocket-themed lava lamp: like jumping off your roof with a fitted mattress sheet for a parachute convinced you’ll be able to walk away unscathed, it just makes sense. Available from Firebox, the out-of-this-world lamp costs $49 and contains blue liquid and red lava. Gosh, I just want to break it open and play with the lava so bad.

The rocket stands 20″ tall and will make the perfect mood-lighting addition to my outer space-themed rumpus room. I mean, once I finally gain spousal approval to turn the guest bedroom into an outer space-themed rumpus room, but my permits keep getting denied.

Rocket fuel costs must be astronomical, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration must be desperate for all the funding it can get because NASA has been licensing its logo to just about anyone with a few space-bucks to spend. I mean I even saw NASA shirts for sale at a gas station the other day. Although, now that I think about it, those were probably unlicensed because it was spelled NASSA and I’m pretty sure that was Star Trek’s United Federation of Planets logo.
