Rusty Rocket's Last Blast


After decades of teaching the basics of rocket physics, Rusty Rocket has decided this will be his last blast. Still, there is one final mission to command: an introductory tour of the solar system for a new class of rocket rookies, focusing on the wide variety of planetary environments. He also emphasizes the immense distances between the planets and using cars and jets for comparison.
