look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
virtonautics n (virtual + nautics, from Greek nautikos, of ships, sailing, like in astronautics) Ð experimental exploration and development of virtual worlds.


Now virtonautics is still in embryo, but in the future it will become as common an occupation as aeronautics and astronautics today.
