The rocket scientists from the Bernal Aeronautics and Space Administration have been very busy lately, advancing the frontiers of high technology.
One recent BASA initiative, shown above, focused on nighttime rocketry. Advanced light-emitting diodes were used to recover the launched BASA spacecraft, while dark clothing made it possible to elude capture by local law-enforcement.
The Optical Systems Division has also been active, leveraging recent advances in miniaturization to mount video cameras on rockets and record launches from start to finish.
This action-packed video shows a BASA rocket going up, coming down, and almost getting hit by a car while awaiting extraction from the Recovery Team:
Meanwhile, back at Bernalwood’s Editorial Control Room, the Cub Reporter has been busily working on a rocketry project of her own. After several after-dinner nights of painting, gluing, and careful decal application, we are proud to unveil the Precita One, our debut launch platform:
The maiden flight of Precita One is scheduled for this weekend, at BASA’s top-secret launch facility. Our engineers have just received a new shipment of rocket motors, and the team is ready to fly!
