First, the restraining devices fall away from the rocket, then the engines are ignited and it takes off. The whole site is humming, and the sky is illuminated for a few seconds so that it seems as if the day has come. The smell of burning in the air. Then the light gradually goes out, and the rocket turns into a point. Everything happens in seconds
