That reminds me of the "Space Travel" game/sim that Ken Thompson wrote for
the first copy/iteration of Unix. 

Did anyone ever actually run/see that? There are some screenshots online but
I'm curious how the original Unix on that old PDP was hitting a framebuffer.
I'm really curious to know how Ken & Dennis approched it, and how far off
from today's crazy graphics interfaces was it.
