To launch a spaceship, follow these instructions:
1. Tap the Launch Pad. A Launch Preparation window will pop up. On this stage, you're required to assemble special collections. You can find these items from flights to Cape Canaveral and Baikonur, or by visiting the space buildings of your neighbors.
2. As soon as the collections are assembled, tap Complete. A Space Program window will pop up. If any of your friends has an ongoing space program, you'll see their avatars in the Space Program window. You can also join one of your friends. To do this, tap their avatar, then tap Join. If you don't have any neighbors with active space programs, you can start your own program and then invite one of your friends to join you.
3. Tap Start to create a new one. A Spaceship Launch window will pop up. Here you can see the resources you'll need to launch your spaceship. You should buy them for coins or Airport Cash until the bar at the left edge of the Spaceship Launch window is full. Please keep in mind that the higher the price of the item is, the more resources you get. To make the process faster, you can invite your friends to join and help you: tap Add a Friend at the bottom of the Spaceship Launch window. You'll now have 24 hours to collect the items!
4. When you tap a button to buy resources, you can see that a counter starts. It indicates the time required to get this type of resource. Buy them until you see the Congratulations window. Then tap Start! Now your ship is headed into outer space!
5. In 24 hours the spaceship returns. Find the lander somewhere around your airport and collect the reward.
