Blown Glass Spaceships Scatter Seeds to the Stars

Made of glass and recycled metals, these spaceships look like they were torn from the pages of rocket magazines in the 1930s. They're the battered but delicate stars of Rik Allen's show "Innersphere" at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle, which runs through April 27. Allen, a master glass blower, said he wanted to pay homage to the science fiction he loved as a kid.

Although I have an unofficial ban on all things "steampunk" in effect, these easily transcend subgenre.

The spaceships were cool, but the other guy's planets were better;
