Chapter 215 of Dr. Stone started pretty strong as Senku and Xeno tried to launch their first stone-age rocket. Well, that didn’t go as planned, and everyone’s comic faces were worth the hard work.
With the latest chapter, Senku is finally rounding back to his childhood dream of going to space. Several flashbacks from Senku’s childhood have shown him and Taiju doing crazy experiments regarding the matter.
During that time as well, Senku had experienced too many setbacks. Now, he is more experienced, but still launching a rocket into space is no joke. To be honest, I am glad that the manga is dedicating so much time to the trial and error process.
Even though both Senku and Xeno are working together, a few years have already gone by in a jiffy. As expected, building a decent rocket isn’t child’s play, especially in the stone world.
Even though Senku has been working on a lot of scientific developments, his childhood goal remains unachieved. The search for Why-Man has brought him back to his fate. He has Xeno’s support now, but will that be enough?
Fans have been speculating about why the science team hasn’t revived any NASA scientists yet. It might be possible that due to the time of the petrification, the scientists were scattered and could not be found in a single place.
Yet, the idea is not too outlandish. Maybe they will revive some of Xeno’s old colleagues who will help them pick up their pace.
Judging from how fast-paced Dr. Stone is, it won’t take too long to figure out the kinks.
Will Senku finally be able to figure everything out about the launching? As impossible as it is, when has that ever stopped our beloved slave-driver scientist?
