“Oh Gott, Who made der heavens and der eart and all dey contain, vee give Yoou tanks on dis Tanksgifing Day!” were the words of the Plungerprize Chaplain, Dr. Bob L. Thumper, as the ship accelerated to escape velocity and transmartian insertion, placing it on a trajectory to Mars.
Below we see the passenger compartment with Sven’s friends experiencing the temporary but uncomfortable change in G forces. Despite the stress, everyone aboard was excited.
ust after transmartian insertion, ground control forwarded the following message from the corporate headquarters of BS (Bergen Sanitation) to all the BS employees aboard the Plungerprize:
