Today the rocket was rolled to the launch pad!I'm so pleased when careful measuring pays off. Not only did it fit effortlessly up the bulkhead, it had 4 inches to spare in the Rav4. I drove and my mom kept a check on softening any jars when manhole covers were unavoidable. "I'm truly sorry officer. I didn't intend on causing a head-on collision. But you see, I have this rocket on board and I didn't want it to bang around!"
Wouldn't have wanted that to happen, would I?
Mom and I transported the rocket into the sanctuary and parked it out of the way of setting up ladders. All the help (A, S, C, M, J, E, M, and even G and D) did a fantastic job in seeing that the rocket made it from the cellar 'space center' to flying.Houston, we have lift-off!Of course I just had to sprawl on my back underneath the Cosmicventure as it flew overhead.
Several hours have passed. The rocket is soaring, I hope. Will I be able to sleep tonight wondering if those hooks that the wire is strung between are holding? Not a chance. I better go check it out.The rocket is speeding through the universe!
It's been a blast!
