Beneath The Wings, Part 2: I Get Schooled

Part 1: "You're Hired"

Posted 03-05-2013 at 02:05 AM by MaverickSawyer

Earth - After several hours of careful alignment burns today, the spacecraft Armstrong with her crew of 12 brave men and women fired their main engines today at precisely 6:01 pm EDT; accelerating out of Earth orbit and flinging themselves into the void and into history. Even if this mission should fail, they will have made history merely in the attempt, for in 2 days time when they pass the orbit of the moon and...
