< what you don’t get to see after a rocket takes off >
When we say something is not rocket science, we actually, humorously mean the said thing is not difficult to understand, not as difficult as building and launching a rocket. To say the least, rocket science is so complicated that it’s taken only 11 of 195 countries of the world to succeed at it.
The big boys league, you know: US, Russia, China, India, France, India, Israel, Iran, North Korea, Ukraine and the UK. And, of course, one man! The crazy Elon Musk. A couple of days ago, May 30, 2020 to be precise, Musk’s SpaceX did a groundbreaking launch for NASA. And we’re proud of him.
While the world watched NASA’s “Crew Dragon” takeoff aboard SpaceX’s “Falcon 9” from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center, there was something very few people got to find out later: recovery of the booster. By the way, all the lengthy stuff you see being shot into the sky from the launchpad isn’t what is being sent into space. How it works is that a rocket booster is attached “to augment the space vehicle’s takeoff thrust and payload capability.”
After successfully helping the rocket escape earth’s gravitational pull, it seperates from the main rocket and returns back to earth, usually landing on a ship stationed in the Atlantic, from where it is recovered for future use.
By the way, “Writing Expo 2.0” promises to be your writing booster – like the rocket booster. The goal is to support you pull through whatever is keeping you from realizing your writing goals. Signing up wouldn’t mean you don’t already know how to write; it may just mean that you wish to write better than pass exams and file work-related reports. What about that book you’ve been dying to write? What about slaying on social media by the quality of your write ups? Or, ain’t you thrilled by this piece of awesomeness?
