Oh, that, it was a "smart" idea of the caption editor: talk about the future photonic rocket  and use the illustration for something completely different to "illustrate" it....

These artist's concept drawings were done by uncle who worked on PARSECS in 1960.  I have b/w negatives of actual pics with explanatory text attached put out by Boeing New Bureau headquartered in Seattle.  I was surprised to find them here to.

Great ideas they had then.
