I spent two months training Blue to press a button when I say the word “engage”. At the same time I was learning the basics of rocketry and tried building a massive rocket to see if Blue would launch it on my command.

I know yall clicked for the cat part.
In instrumental (also called operant) conditioning, getting the initial response is the hardest part. Using the wand (I use a spoon with my cats) helps direct their attention. Once they learn to associate it with food (touch spoon, get food), they will where you move the spoon. Then you can move the spoon to the thing you want to teach the cat to touch when you say a word. The verbal clue that you want him to do something is very important. He may press the button if he sees it later when you’re not around, not be rewarded, then learn it doesn’t always work. Using the verbal clue (engage), let’s him no to perform now to get the food. Also, you didn’t “shape” the response enough. Once he learned to touch the button, you could then teach him that merely touching it doesn’t get him the food anymore. He has to really lean on it to get the treat. You just kept reinforcing that he could just tap it. So that’s the behavior you got.
Great job training him otherwise though. Cats are smart and trainable, as long as you can find a reinforcement they like (mostly food and/or affection). They learn things on their own all the time and they can learn from each other so once you get involved it can be like a game to them. You can also train other, less intelligent pets. Even goldfish!
“My boy Blue!” Thanks CNN for directing me here. 👍🏽
Great job! (Cats are so unpredictable – you did it, though.)
I am so thoroughly impressed that you were able to train that cat! Wow! Amazing video ❤️🙌🏼

You left out the most important event: giving the reward of cuddling and praising Blue for successfully learning and executing his lesson of LAUNCHING A ROCKET!!! Would've liked to have seen that included in the video! Mrow!

This is what the Russians are researching right at this moment. XD
you have to repopulate the cat until they get a genetic and then teach the cat can lunch the rocket

I thought you were launching a cat in a rocket. But this is fine too.
