Mary became an invalid at the age of forty-eight. She died in 1851 of a brain tumor with poetic timing. The Great Exhibition, which was a showcase of technological progress, was opened. This was the same scientific technology that she had warned against in her most famous book, Frankenstein.

kinda neat, although I think it may be pretty hard to get the spool to un wind correctlly. ive used many model rockets in my time. perhaps if one used a remote launcher (like most do) it COULD be safe. that is, the launcher is located out of state.
