60 Minutes to Launch:
Launch Day, finally. For the two courageous Zobornauts, this day marked the end of a tensed period of anxious anticipation. On this day, they would find out whether all knowledge and skills attained during the formal mission training of two years testing mental preparation and physical training would pay off. As with all great adventures of our times, the dividing line between success and failure of this mission is wafer thin. Will it be "One small tumble for woman, one giant tumble for womankind"? The two Zobornauts and indeed the whole nail-biting world would soon find out.
30 minutes to Launch
After a light breakfast, Major Wizynskis and Captain Widzentel were ushered into the briefing room for a final run down of this historic day's itinerary and launch procedures. Solemn readiness were etched on the faces of both Zobornauts as they nodded to indicate comprehension to everything that was said to them. They would be finally akin to lifetime experiments conducted in a realm where gravity, temperature, and pressure can be manipulated for a variety of scientific purposes. For the benefit of medical and engineering breakthroughs these two were ready and determined to make history.
Outside, at the visitor's dock, parents and families waited apprehensively for the two to finally embark on this dangerous mission. Concerned family members recited prayers in silence, praying for the safe launch for the two Zorbornauts. Parents were also handed a comprehensive manual on all the procedures involved in the launching to facilitate their understanding regarding the entire Zorbanaut programme.
15 minutes to Launch
After the final briefing, the two Zorbonouts were transported to the Zorbonaut Pick Up point located in the vicinity of the Zorb Station. Clad in special outer space alienation costumes specially designed for this Zorbadoobeedoo mission, the dauntless
pair then mounted on the feeder shuttle making their way 300 metres above ground to get access to the Zorbcraft.
The time has finally arrived for these two to experience the acceleration of the Zorbcraft from zero to over seventeen thousand miles per hour (mach 25)in less than 8seconds. Only well trained individuals are able to withstand the gravitational pull of that kind, and these two are more than ready to undergo such endurance.
