Rocket Lab named its first Electron "It's a Test."


Full points for the matter-of-fact name.

Per W'pedia, it uses a lithium polymer battery to power the fuel pumps. I wonder if they could finish off a stage by getting the batteries to do what lithium batteries seem to do well, Orion style.

I have vague memories of an SF story set in an overpolluted Earth drowning in garbage. The protagonist went to a bar for a bottle of beer. When he finished the bottle, it dissolved down to a shot glass containing one last swallow of beer. After he drank that, the glass turned into a blob of polish for the barkeeper to use on the bar. Can anyone point me towards the story, please?
