[Writing] KSP: First flight!


Recommended Posts

The monster was standing on it´s pad. Waiting, waiting for someone to press the booster button that would either be successful, or cause half the continent to explode!

Years of engineering, testing, thinking and more testing had lead up to this day. The day were Kerbals would leave the chains of Kerbin and explore worlds beyond their own.

Three kerbals had flown from Kousten in their jet and had just landed next to the huge rocket, that was standing in the KSC launch facility.

The three kerbals where named: 'Bill Kerman, Jeb Kerman and Bob Kerman.

As they got suited up, Bill and Bob started to look worried. Jeb Could not understand them. He was soooo exited for this mission. He loved to fly, and his motto was: If we explode, we explode! ??? ;P

Jeb was the commander, Bill was the command module pilot and Bob was the Munar module pilot. kerbals did not know what a Munar module pilot was at that time, but it sounded cool.

After they where done, they went to the rocket and got strapped into the small Merkury capsule on top of it.

This was only a sub-orbital mission and in about 12 minutes, they would be safe with both legs on Kerbin again. That is, if everything had went as planned.

The countdown started: 10 9 8 7 6 5... Jeb was bored, and when there was only five seconds left of the countdown, he could not wait any longer, so he pushed a big button that looked like this:

The hole place started to shake. The vibrations started, and the rocket started to climp. Bill and Bob started to scream in terror, while Jeb started to laugh. This was the coolest thing he had ever been in involved in!

10 feet, 20 feet, 30 feet...

Faster and faster.

Suddently the capsule separated and three kerbals where in space for the first time! 8)

Jeb: Where in freeking spaaaaaaaace!!

How crazy is that!!



Jeb: Stop screaming!

But Jebs command did not help.

So he did the only thing he could do.

He pressed a big blue button, and the door opened. Jeb was holding on to his seat, while Bill and Bob was sucked out of the spacecraft!

Jeb closed the door.

Jeb: Holy moly! Well now they are not screaming anymore, so that is good. I will bring them home on a later mission.

Now I want ice-cream.

Jeb flipped the retro switch and was welcomed home as a hero, and he got his ice-cream. =P


(Bill and Bob was picked up in the next mission. They where very mad at Jeb, but became good friends with him again)
