All I know is I want one.

The Black Rock Arts Foundation writes:
“The 40-foot-tall art piece, The Raygun Gothic Rocketship, offers rococo-futuristic, highly-stylized vision of space travel circa 1930's-1940's science fiction and is the latest in a series of temporary public art exhibitions sponsored by BRAF with the aim of enlivening and activating public spaces. The installation first landed at Burning Man 2009, and has subsequently appeared at NASA Ames for Yuri's Night, and at Maker Faire. The piece is comprised of a single rocketship, poised as if to board passengers for a typical run to a nearby stellar destination. When installed in San Francisco, the sculpture will be accompanied by a descriptive exhibit, a "rocket stop", which tells the story of the rocketship, provides route, schedule and other information. The installation will be illuminated for nighttime viewing. We need your support!!!” (Click here for more)

"All I know is I want one."

What do you mean, you want one Mick? I've got one of those in my kitchen. It's a poncy lemon squeezer by Philip Stark. It keeps falling over every time I try to use it.
Must have been a right lemon to buy it in the first place.
