Strangely, they still celebrate by eating hot dogs. Since they don't have mouths, they just kinda toss them in the air and let them fall back down into their propeller blades. It's pretty messy.

It took a lot of booster rockets, but luckily Amazon had recently built thousands of them to bring Amazon Prime same-day delivery to the Moon colony.

Actually, how much delta v does an ICBM even have? It sure as fuck isn't the 29.78 km/s you need to hit the sun.

That is why they are using all the booster rockets from the Amazon Prime same-day lunar delivery project.

Oh I didn't read far enough, it's "only" 18.25 km/s: http://space.stackexchange.com/questions/3612/calculating-solar-system-escape-and-and-sun-dive-delta-v-from-lower-earth-orbit

I'm going to guess there are ways to use gravity assists to reduce the delta-v requirements of the rockets themselves, but I'm terrible at gravity assists in Kerbal Space Program

the US Minotaur launcher family is made up of repurposed ICBM stages but the orbital version (a) have a lower payload and (b) different upper stages. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minotaur_%28rocket_family%29

Um, didn't "Superman IV" demonstrate why this is a terrible idea?
