Stephen King, stay out of space

I have no idea where the following dream came from.

I dreamed that Stephen King had purchased an island.

Seems plausible so far.

He then proceeded to outfit it with a full spaceport and planned to launch his own shuttle into space.

Wth, brain?

At the end of the dream thousands of people were on hand to watch the takeoff.

It was a beautiful, clear night.  The engines lit.  The shuttle began to rise on a column of fire while the crowd cheered.

And then the shuttle  veered toward the ground and exploded in a spectacular ball of fire.

Steven King, stay the hell out of space.
