Sorry this one’s late. Kids, always upload your memes well in advance if you’re travelling.
Anyone who’s played Kerbal Space Program knows that ‘don’t forget the parachute’ is the first rule of rocket science.
Hey! Happy 2018 everyone! If you’re reading this, you’ve probably broken your New Year’s Resolution already. On the plus side, there’s a lot to look forward to this year. In January, the first Falcon Heavy launch, which will be the biggest (current) rocket in the world. In July and August, the Hayabusa 2 and OSIRIS-REx spacecrafts arrive at their respective asteroids. New Horizons will reach its new target on New Years Day 2019. Plus there are lunar eclipses in January and July.
Kids, don’t lie to your parents. You’re never as good at it as you think you are.
Also sorry for being late. I’m pretty sick at the moment, and still emotionally recovering after watching Coco.
I’m just saying, Play School is really missing out on an opportunity to teach children astrophysics.
And why do they ALWAYS pick the arch window? Seriously, give the diamond window a chance!
A while ago I installed an app that prompts me whenever there’s an impending rocket launch, and yeah… it’s not doing my sleep schedule any favours. Also I’m pretty sure you have to do a throwback comic at least twice before it becomes a running gag, so expect to see this setup again in about 6 months. 😛
Of course, the tricky part is keeping the explode-y part of the rocket pointed away from space.
And now you know both Sedna’s last name, AND how a ten-year-old girl gets her hands on pyrotechnical equipment.
I have decided that launch towers are officially the hardest thing to draw. |:(
Staying up until 5am to watch something live is like a rite of passage in Australia.
