This is like putting the kid on the roof of a car and drivng through a meteor storm - no, it's exactly like that. Even if he doesn't suffer burns from the flaming rocks or asphyxiation from the thin air, aren't the chances pretty good that Elroy will call off and plummet for an eternity to the ruined, bleak, radioactive landscape beneath the stilt-city to which the survivors fled?

Oh, and Astro is stoned.
