Gravity assist is a slingshot move, when one object uses the gravity of another to propel itself out of orbit.

Much contemporary thought is unfortunately, but understandably, focused on dystopia.

Literature during the years between the World Wars reflected the angst, chaos, and turmoil of modernity. Psychoanalysis gave rise to the diagnoses of "hysteria" and "Shell-shocked." Individuals struggled with political and economic instability. The Influenza pandemic spread fear as millions succumbed to the infection.
