You can look for Saturn V on ELPA (I'm damned sure someone wrote a package for flying Saturn V from Emacs!), but I doubt the reverse is possible.

Interesting post about fundamental pedagogical issues. What makes us to be good at something?
I was a wayward kid who grew up on the literary side of life, treating math and science as if they were pustules from the plague.…
