When I was 10 I would have thought that was the coolest idea in the  
world! The US space program was in high gear, shifting from Gemini to  
Apollo with every kid on the block aching to see if we'd really make  
it to the Moon in the time Kennedy promised. And with Duckburg so  
plainly ahead of the rest of the world in space technology - for me,  
Island In the Sky was as legitimate a story as any of the others by  
that "good Duck artist", and still is - having the nephews' parents  
out there doing grand things in the Final Frontier would have been a  
great basis for a whole series of stories.

Funny thing, though, I never thought of it as a possibility back  
then. It just never, ever occurred to me. Hmph!
