1st Space Launch
The Do-rjae 1 is nearing blast off. The countdown stands at 00:59:43.
Five Civilized Nations
OOC: Um... More info will be appreciated...
OOC: Sorry. :) The establishment RPs are spread over several threads, and the pitiful 'puter here at the bar doesn't cut and paste. :( I'll post the threads when I get home in a few hours....
OOC:While we wait for that larger announcement *cheers, throws confetti*
The origins can be found here: http://www.nationstates.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=81876&highlight=
And the lead up is interspersed with other announcemnents here:
OOC: Woo, yay, space flight! Congratz! :o Now if only I'd get to do a space flight... :?
The rocket is coverd in spectacular advertising from many local corporations. Also featured prominently are the following advertisments:
"Irn-Bru: Kicking Coke's behind for all eternity"
"IRAQI TOURISM BOARD: Fly Iraq air to Iraq and get special offers on exiting trips to see some of the finest places in the land"
"IDrink PiFizz! The drink of Daistallia*s space program!"I
The plane takes off and is hit by an asteroid and explodes. The end.
OOC: Sorry, just HAD to do that :lol: :lol: :wink:
"Excellent. Maybe the next one can be used to promote DRI."
"Marketting says nothing will promote Disaster Relief, Inc, except disaster itself."
t-minus 0023:02 and counting....
At the DASI mission control center, located in the far south tropical zone of Daistallia, the staff is busy making the last minute adjustments needed. All fingers are crossed. The large clock on the central display screen stands at 00:03:23.
So, is the rocket up yet?
OOC: Thanks to the wonderful nature of NS flex time, the years of development that went into the research can be compressed into days yet the final hour of the countdown has streched out over days. :D
"10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... We have ignition... 3... 2... 1... We have lifteoff! Repeat we have lift off! Go, baby, GO!"
The rocket lifts off from the launch pad and begins treaking upwards accros the sky. The second stage fires perfectly on time. The twin payloads, a commercial communications satellite and a military reconnaissance satellite, are soon deployed into their assigned orbits.
Pilon celebrates the launch.
