As the astronaut walked along the tarmac towards the rocket, he took a moment to reflect on his mission. It was set to be the single most important event in the history of mankind. If he were to fail, the ramifications were to horrifying to contemplate.
The astronaut was picked from a pool of millions that took the better part of a decade to sort through. Finally the human race had picked it’s savior.
The astronaut approached the capsule and turned towards the crowd of tens of thousands that had assembled to see him off. He gave a stoic salute and a single tear ran down his cheek.
That was when the crowd grabbed him and started tossing him around with him finally ending up outside the city limits of Houston. We do not need a big baby flying around in space in a rocket ship.
