Power - ABORT! ABORT!
"Houston Calling Zipper 1. Do you have a problem? Repeat, Do you have a Problem? Over."
"This is Zipper 1 calling Houston. Wrong zipper foot on. Request change and restart."
"Confirmed, Zipper 1, Houston over and out."

Power supply - foot pedal.Check!
Go for main engine start.
5,4,3,2,1......We have main engine start - Zipper 1 breaks away from the launch pad. It looks tight, retro rockets firing.......this is a really tense moment, the reverse button has worked....YES!! Successful premier launch - Zipper 1 has completed the mission, touched down safely and THE.ZIP.IS.IN!!!!!!!!!!!!
