It has now been three days since our mission was given to us, and all of us here at the Tinkering School Space Laboratory can say that significant progress has been made on our ship, the T.S. Gever Tulley.

The main frame is getting it's fire and meteor proof side panels attached, the beds are getting attached to their anti-gravity posts, the space toilet is being mounted to it's explosion proof plumbing system, and the control panel got it's electronics delivered from our high quality spacecraft electronics supplier.

Meanwhile our friends in the far far away galaxy continued constructing their mountain, as well as the dragon and their floating cloud houses.

Mission update: 

Yesterday we made our team agreements and got started designing what we need to complete our galactic mission. And today we were in full construction mode to get our designs into action.

Here is our spacecraft, The T.S. Gever Tulley This beauty is going to carry us off of earth and deep into the galaxy so we can step foot onto a newly discovered planet, and take samples from the newly discovered alien dragon. Most of our highly trained astronaut-fabricators are working on the main frame of the craft, while some are working on some other crucial parts such as the space toilet, sample crane, and our state of the art control panel.

Aside from The TS One and it's facilities, far away in another galaxy, another team is building up their prized alien dragon as a gift to our astronauts so they can collect samples.

Also in this galaxy, a clean-up and construction crew is beautifying their planet and constructing new structures to make a good impression on the astronauts. Communication with the planet is limited, but from what we've heard, they're designing and building a mountain. Oh, the things Earth would do for technology like that!

The last thing that was heard over the planets communication with us was a dance party that broke out in the build site of the mountain. Our astronauts are feeling a lot less nervous now because apparently this planet in a galaxy far far away also listens to Justin Timberlake just like us!

:::press release:::

Mission Control
San Francisco, California

Mission 8 aboard the T.S. Gever Tulley to explore an uncharted planet has begun.

Not very early this morning, our mission team assembled and we agreed to treat each other, ourselves, and our environments respectfully.  All team members endured hours of training on specialized equipment to prepare them for the upcoming projects of stablizing the Spacecraft, exploring the Environment of the new planet we landed on, and building a Colony for us to live in.

Then, we closed our eyes and entered hypersleep.

When we awoke we had safely landed on the unexplored planet!! The three projects groups immediately began planning out and designing their strategies.

And got down to business!

Check in tomorrow for the next dispatch from Tinkerers in Space.
