When it is fired, it will accelerate through the launch tube at three times the force of gravity. It will continue to accelerate until it reaches outside the atmosphere, where it'll carry momentum into orbit over the North Pole, over Siberia, Mongolia... and then the South China Sea, the rocket will begin to descend. At which point Pendrick plans to open the door to the rocket and, wearing his gliding suit, fly back to Earth, landing on the isle of Borneo.
