image for Russia ask Mongolia advice about how to launch rockets!
Russian scientists now understand, rockets have to face skywards and not westwards!

After Russia's latest disastrous attempt to launch a Soyuz-2 rocket, which exploded somewhere between here and the heavens, they have decided to ask Mongolia if they could offer them some advice in rocket-launching.

The debris of the failed Soyuz landed on the heads of innocent Siberian women collecting their stiff washing from their washing lines in Tobolsk. They thought it was Father Christmas unloading his presents.

The reason why they have asked Mongolia is quite simple; they are to embarrassed to ask the US, China, India or North Korea (?) because they would become the laughing stock of the space fraternity.

Mongolians are very aware of the heavens, the stars, the constellations and also have vast experience in launching their birds of prey without any problems at all so they are a perfect source of things scientific, flying and the universe.

One Mongolian monk, 103 years old, gave the Russians the following tip, "try pointing it skywards, it helps," Now Russian scientists understand the problem because their rockets generally tend to be pointed westwards, but don't tell the CIA!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
