Dr. Mike Nelson’s Journal.

One of my early writings from my high school years.

My white car, Government Issue Label #YS-7293, slid down the ramp of the truck, and I turned it down a dirt road. This road led towards an air force base that was in need of a special solution that would provide energy for an underwater rocket. I knew I was perfectly capable of succeeding in doing this because my white car is actually a laboratory with wheels. This puts me at an unfair advantage over some other guys who speed way above the speed limit.

As my car traveled down the road, I saw a few soldiers stand by the entrance to my home base, the Woodville Air Force Base, which is a subdivision of the National Government Security Division, or the NGSD. The soldiers saw my license plate, and my ID card, nodded and let me pass.

As I was going down the road, I rewound a cassette describing my mission, and listened to it again.

Dr. Nelson, your mission is to establish fuel to provide enough energy to force a rocket out of its launch pad underwater and yet retain the equalised force to push it into open space, and beyond the earth. Your fellow comrades should give you assistance upon your arrival at the base, but I know you are virtually self-sufficient. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Nelson, and we hold you as the true American hero. Sincerely, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

Some soldiers halted me and asked me for identification. Again, I presented the card, and the soldiers guided me to a huge warehouse where the colonel was discussing plans about the rocket. He showed me the plans and then asked me to devise fuel for it.

I went to my car and opened the trunk, and then took a Hex crystal, and put it in its slot. Then the walls of the trunk protruded outwards to reveal a miniature laboratory. I then pulled out drawers containing chemicals and then figured out the appropriate chemical for fuel. My years of scientific experience told me that Ferrit Colmonite combined with Valtionium would provide power so forceful, it could push my car for kilometers and kilometers.

I took a tennis ball and punctured a hole in it, then I stuck a test tube with Ferrit Colmonite, and a very brittle tube containing the Valtionium, inside the ball. I told the scientists to stay 100 meters behind me, and I threw the ball high into the air. It was some time before it hit the ground. The force of impact broke the Valtionium tube, thus mixing the two chemicals together, and then, with a loud roar, the tennis ball shot up into the air, sailing up about 1 kilometer, before it fell back to earth again.

I told the scientists that there was only a small solution involved in the liftoff. The successful test led to Stage 2 of the tennis ball test.

I prepared the tennis ball again, but this time I put twice as much chemical components inside the ball. The set-up was the same, with the use of the brittle tube. I fastened a small, radio-activated explosive at the bottom of the tube and then I put the tennis ball in the 3-meter mark, the deep end of the pool. I dove in and then put the ball under a net so the ball would not float back up to the surface.

After I dried myself off, I then took the remote control and then I asked all scientists to stay away from the pool. I pressed the button, and the explosive burst, puncturing the Valtionium and the two chemicals mixed together. Seconds later, we saw the ball fly up from the pool into the air, where it was never seen by any of us again.

The successful testing led to the creation of the UWM-TP1 missile.
