The Rocket Factory is a Trans-Dimensional manufacturing plant, bridging the Physical and Digital realms. A Rocket is composed of three Component NFTs: a Nose Cone, a Body, and a Tail. These components were burned and minted into a Completed Rocket NFT. When the Launch Option was selected, a Physical Rocket sculpture was hand-made in Physical Space. The Physical Rocket is an exact replica of the Completed Rocket NFT.

More from this creator.
On August 1st, 2021 Rocket Components were released. Components could be Com-burned into Rocket NFTs. Rocket Holders could elect to have a physical counterpart of their Rocket assembled and launched. The Final Physical Rocket Launch took place 1 year later in August, 2022. The Completed Rocket NFT, its Physical Rocket twin (if recovered), and the video documenting the launch form a Holy Trinity. An NFT, A Physical Rocket, a video documenting the launch. These are not 3 separate things. This is one. A Singular Trans-dimensional NFT, and it is yours to keep.
