Before we can get the satellite to work, we need something to lift off the ground. It's that simple.
BUILD THE LAUNCHPAD
One computer terminal with seat
One flat, desginated spot for launch.
Three extra gas tanks.
DUE DATE: July 29
LAUNCDATE: August 2. This is where we launch everything off. If everything goes right, of course. Information
Launchpad C1-1 has finally been constructed! We can now launch our satellite! Launchpad C1-1 has also been designed as a landing pad for small air/spacecraft to cater for any future needs of camp 1.sorry about lack of descriptions, this needed to posted today and I am going on holiday for a few days.
Launch pad C1-1 (launch pad Camp 1-pad 1) is the first of its kind at Camp 1, we hope in the future to build better and larger versions to launch bigger space craft and create airports for for aircraft etc.
On top of the launch bunker is the location of the fuel tanks, the larger is aviation fuel, the smaller is specialist space fuel for the varying engines and rocket on our to-be space rocket and the lat tank is on the far right, containing a very dense fuel found on a alien craft, from which a pumping hose is sometimes attached.
The raised lights and satellite dish to light the pad and to transfer communication to other areas of the camp.
Another light on the floor.
Another view of the fuel tanks, next to a video camera for streaming live images to the launch bunker and for recording purposes.
Here have Gator, Navi Gator. (see what I did there!) our chief navigator for C1-1, sitting in his famed control chair, surrounded by plenty of buttons and levers. due to modern technology we only need one person controlling launches, thus Navi here has hipped up his status as chief navigator!
The chair empty surrounded by C1-1 controls.
Another view of the control area.
Rocket launches are quiet a spectacle at camp 1, and a great day out for the family, only 50Spec per person to have view in the control bunker!
Here is a one of the rocket fueling team posing with his favorite thing, his fuel hose!
Even though C1-1 is small a transporter is needed to move cargo, supplies and other goods to and from the rocket! Here Navi is loading the craft up with a transport box.
