I would LOVE to go into space!

Would you enjoy going into space? Yes of course I would. You get to soar in a rocket which is hair-raising and scary but exciting.

You can see all the planets – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. My favourite is Jupiter because its the biggest planet and amazing rings around it which are bands of clouds. You wear a white spacesuit and a big heavy backpack which carries air to breathe, as there is no oxygen to breathe like on Earth, so without it you will die.

In space it is so much fun when you are floating. If you want to go to space you have to learn about science, history and geography. Even though it would be fun, it’s very expensive.

I really want to be an astronaut because I would get to see Earth when it’s really small in space. Another reason is because it would be the most exciting, mind blowing and exhilarating thing to do in your life. I would like to do it as it’s a special thing that not many people do. I really hope that when I grow up I can get to go into space.

I am going to work very hard to become an astronaut and achieve my dreams.
