we look back at what we thought was going to happen, then by
now we would have had our own personal rocket ships and faithful
robot companions; we'd have been blasting out full tilt in time-speed-distance
rallies between the moons of Mars, filling up our retro rockets

We always have the chance to fill it with what we want it
