"Zero-nine-zero-seven. Moscow Time. “Preliminary stage...” Hah. Got to… “ Intermediate...” Huh. Got to say. “Main…” Nuh. Jelly spine. Numb ass. Got to say something. “LIFT OFF!” Whoof. “Have a good flight. Everything is A-OK.” The rockets’ rumble rubbing teeth to cinders. Is that “A-OK”? Need. Need to say something brave. Here we go: “Poyekhali!” Here we go into the history books. The G-force misshaping the smile. Brain compacting in base of skull like Tushonka. Sinking to into helmet. Help."
