From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
The only general symbol of science-fiction, says Dan McPhail, and the only known way of accomplishing interplanetary travel, which is a number one scientific ambition of fandom. Many fans in early days joined rocket societies such as the ARS or BIS to back or perform experimental work on rockets; and when the war gave great impetus to rocketry, some fans formed definite plans to join the research which, they hoped, would lead to construction of the first space ship -- in our time.
