Space Agency Purchases Low-Altitude Rocket
The West Who Space and Planet Exploration Agency (SPEA) announced that Congress supports its efforts to launch a rocket. The Space Agency purchased a low power rocket, which is a small rocket designed to reach low altitudes (usually to around 100–500 m (300–1500 ft). Such rockets are recovered by a variety of means. SPEA Director K. Farr said, “a proposal to Congress for funds so West Who can launch a rocket and thus join the space race was accepted by Congress. We are very excited. The actual launch date will be determined by the Space Agency at a later time.” A recent poll by the Whoville News showed that 90% of West Who citizens supported the government launching a rocket. The poll also revealed that citizens said they would like to sample astronaut space food.
