    I'm working on a project where a site must launch at the very bottom of a document. Then, the user scrolls up to view the rest of the page instead of conventional downward scrolling.

    The idea is of a rocket launch (at the bottom of the page) and as the rocket zooms through the atmosphere towards space, the page scrolls up.

    My problem is that I'm not sure how to invoke a page to launch at the bottom. I thought of an #bottom anchor link, but I don't think this would work if the page has to load first.

    Another idea I had was to preload everything (images and .html) using javascript and then dump it to the screen. Again, I'm not sure how I would implement this.

    If anyone has any ideas, I'd be happy to hear them. If you've seen any examples of this, I would also be really interested to see them.

    Anyway, I hope someone knows what I'm talking about and can proivde some help.

    Thanks in advance!
