Post Ken Thompson's game. (Inventor of Unix which led to Linux.)

I was reading a story on the inventor of Unix and I saw he wrote a game called "Space Travel". The answer to my question is most likely no, but is there a way I can get a hold of this game he wrote.

Edit: Well at least the concepts. The binary would be great so I could disassemble it. This is not realistic, but I can dream. Maybe I could find a way to reverse engineer it with the out put of his program and write it into C. It would be funny if it went from the command line to a three dimensional game and back to the drawing board and cycle through again.
