A meteorite suddenly struck the newly launched rocketship. Nobody saw it coming. The rocketship shook and all stations were alerted for any emergency. Sirens were ablast.
The emergency patrols rushed to the site but initial search and investigation revealed no fissures on the surface. The complete satellite images have been downloaded but no visible cracks were seen.
Incoming reports on the project are being carefully monitored. All workers at each work substation were briefed on what to do in case of sudden, erratic changes in the various gauges in the rocketship. Small tremors and kneejerk vibrations are being felt from time to time perhaps from the impact of the meterorite. Significantly, things are starting to settle down but the stress within the rocketship is still high, causing diminution of the oxygen supply level at a faster rate.
The executive officer alerted all the sub-wing commanders and named representatives from all clusters to begin the overhaul. Each chosen representative and would be placed in orbit to freely move around the rocketship and ascertain its continued reliability. Awaiting confirmation.
Evaluation, repairs and maintenance may take some time. Until then.
