#2107: Launch Risk

Launch Risk

[A large spaceship rocket is standing on it’s launchpad, just decoupled from the tower that supports it ready for launch. At the very top of the rocket where the astronauts are sitting there are two lines coming out, indicating the speak from the two astronauts inside the rocket. Next to the top of the rocket there is a speech bubble drawn with jagged line indicating sound from a loudspeaker. It is the countdown to the launch.]

Astronaut 1: How you feeling?

Astronaut 2: Honestly, pretty nervous.

Astronaut 1: I know it seems dangerous, but just remember: you’re more likely to be struck by lightning than to be selected to become an astronaut.

Astronaut 2: Oh that’s a good-

Astronaut 2: …Wait.

Countdown: T-Minus 20…19…
