* ShownTheirWork: In the book ''Literature/ExpandedUniverse'', Mr. Heinlein explain how Mrs. Heinlein and he spent many hours calculating the precise orbit of the spaceship when it departs Luna and slingshots around Earth toward Mars. They had to do it with paper and pen, because in the early 1950s there was no other way and he wanted it to be correct.

** ScienceMarchesOn: It's a case of not thinking of it, because the basic physics remained unchanged. But it appears to never have occurred to Heinlein that Jupiter could be used to boost a spacecraft to reach a further target faster and with less fuel required. (This book ends with the Stones heading for Saturn.)
