The countdown begins.

Tension mounts.

The rumble of an earthquake.

Teeth shaking in your head.

Trust in your colleagues.

Trust in your training.

The cockpit begins to blur.

And then… Heavier than you have ever felt.

More noise than you have ever heard.

Can this thing possibly stay in one piece?

But in the end.

Weightlessness and silence.

Such contrasts, so quickly.
