Written by Allan Wilson

The theme andrepparttar name for this article was taken from a story someone told me about space travel.

You see when it comes to getting a rocket into spacerepparttar 117730 hardest part is inrepparttar 117731 Lift Off and breaking free ofrepparttar 117732 earth's gravity.

This is usuallyrepparttar 117733 most anxious time for all involved. Countless hours and many people have been working behindrepparttar 117734 scenes to get this rocket into space.

Finallyrepparttar 117735 tense moments ofrepparttar 117736 count down begins. 10... 9... 8... and so on until off it goes andrepparttar 117737 announcement is made "We Have Lift Off!"

Thenrepparttar 117738 struggle begins forrepparttar 117739 rocket to get offrepparttar 117740 ground. This rocket could have a journey, which will last many years in space, yet most ofrepparttar 117741 power and fuel used will be in just getting started.

As it struggles to leave earth's atmosphere tanks of fuel are burned up and discarded before it reachesrepparttar 117742 first vital point of its journey - space.

Then something amazing happens. There is no more gravity. No more huge burst of energy and fuel needed. The steering ofrepparttar 117743 craft becomes much easier and everyone back home inrepparttar 117744 control center breath a huge sigh of relief.

The hardest part is over -repparttar 117745 rocket is in space.

Sure there is still work to be done. However compared torepparttar 117746 beginning everything now almost runs in automatic.

The Astronauts even have time to see our planet from space and enjoyrepparttar 117747 view.
