I know it's not sexy, but I have a fondness for the Apollo series. The leap in tehcnology and knowledge that went into those is unbelievable!

Uhm, that would be me in my 03 Mazda pretending that I'm queueing up with the upper atmosphere and gathering speed using the curvature and rotation of the Earth to assist. Making the most of tightly curved off ramps. Pshew!

Real ship would be Apollo 13 and fictional is USS Valley Forge from Silent Running - space ship with a forest, absolutely perfect.

Real, easily the Saturn V hands down, not even a contest. SciFi would have to be the Space 1999 Eagle. Used to a 3 foot long toy version of it. Wish I still had it.

Saturn V I like it because think about it, how old is that? And how long will it take for something to surpass it? It was built to do more than take us to the moon, I just hope we don't lose that technology in the future when it may be needed.

My favourite spaceship has got to be New Horizons. I was born too late to witness the exploration of the other planets, and so being able to witness the flyby of Pluto and Charon when I was 15 was extremely exciting to me, especially when the first images came streaming in. Pluto and Charon had previously been thought of as "uninteresting" worlds, because of they were both so far away and nobody expected there to be anything unusual. New Horizons changed all of that, and showed us how breathtaking and 'alive' these worlds truly are. I'm in the middle of writing a space talk about the New Horizons flyby right now, in an effort to get more people excited about future exploration of this distant binary planetary system.
