One small step for a pony... by ElenaBoosy One small step for a pony... by ElenaBoosy
They thought themselves ready, they thought themselves braced,

But soon through their minds all manner of thoughts raced.

Astonished and amazed was one Pinkie Pie,

Giggling as she looked down on Equestria's sky.

Fluttershy cowered and her mind filled with dread,

Wishing she was home fast asleep in her bed.

Rarity did her best to hold in her own fright,

As she stared in awe at the beauty of the sight.

Applejack grabbed hold in wonder and alarm,

They'd never believe this one back at the farm.

RD looked on and for once she was floored,

This was much higher than she'd ever soared.

Twilight stood free of gravity's fetter,

Thinking this might take more than simply one letter!

This is brilliant. Especially their face expressions. Shock and awe.

And then they look off a few miles in the distance and see another rocket landing, and little green men in orange suits hop out and plant a flag of their own with the letters "KSP"

And then the Kerbonauts discover their ship is out of fuel, so Jebediah Kerman rides Rainbow Dash home, using her as an impromptu heatshield because I'm using the Deadly Re-entry plugin. Then, Jeb builds a rocket out of spacesuit material and what's left of Rainbow Dash- and flies to the mun AGAIN, this time using Pinkie Pie as a heat shield.

I can just about imagine walking on another planet but only because I've been a space geek since childhood!

Just remember, everypony - that pretty blue marble in the sky? All of history, everything that ponykind has ever done, every triumph, tragedy, achievement and setback all occurred on that distant object that you can block from sight with your hoof fully outstretched in front of you. Look back and remind yourself just how precious that place is and just how fortunate you are to represent your kind in stepping beyond that world into the endless unknown that lies beyond it.

Yes, the Luna 9 spacecraft WAS here, being the first spacecraft to land on the Mun.

Oh, you were talking about Princess Luna, not a spherical lander vehicle with battery and transmitter?

Well, they're both the same in brainpower

Well, the perfectionist in me remarks, that either their helmets got flat surfaces and/or the planet is really close and really small, otherwise the reflection would be on almost the same spot on each helmet and much smaller. But then again, space ponies :D

Ok, I know about the reflection. It bugged me a little because it seemed wrong, I also thought not to upload this but eventually I gave up.
The point is, making the reflection of the planet more realistic and true-to-size would have compromized the artwork, as the reflection would have either covered ponies' faces or been unclear and small enough to ruin the "magic" of the moment.

So I decided to ignore a little of physics and astronomy for this pic. :giggle:

Huston, we have a pony. I especially like the reflexion of the Earth on their helmets as well as the design of their space suits. The only thing i might change is it would be nice to see stylized Cutie Marks on their suits.

It's only logical- Nightmare Moon had to survive on eating probe landing legs while she was on the Moon, because the Moon's cheese was also made of hard, tasteless, inedible soil.

Woona walks up to them, "Why are you all wearing helmets? Everypony knows the moon has as atmosphere!"

The ponies blink and take off their helmets, and sure enough, there is an atmosphere!

Woona grins evily, "Too bad it's 100% carbon dioxide."

THEY ALL DIE!! 'Woona' transforms into that dark and evil filly! "MUWAH HA HA HA!! The night shall last FOREVER!!!"
