This is me with Greg Linteris, the astronout at the Kennedy Space Centre. He has been to space twice and told us all about it.File Uploaded
You must tell us about it in class Dennis!
Time seemed to slow down. The rocket floated towards the hole, creaking as it broke apart. All my friends and family were on that ship. Tears welled in my eyes as I watched my life get sucked into a vortex of destruction… ” The main thruster has broken! We need someone to go outside and fix it!” I stepped forward. “I’ll do it!” I got into my space suit and stepped into space… All of that seemed so long ago. As I drew closer the black hole, I stared down at the beautiful Earth below me, knowing it would be the last thing I ever saw.
SNAP!!!!!! The cable had broken. I was floating. My heart pounding in my chest. Not knowing what to do or where to go. I suddenly felt so small compared to the rest of the universe. For I was only a human. If I had done a safety check, if I had not left my family, if I had not joined NASA, then I wouldn’t be floating in space. I realised my oxygen tank was low. I was scuppered. I had to contact earth somehow. Bits of space scrap were bumping in to me like they didn’t care. I was doomed.
Fantastic Will! Great use of tension and suspense. Well done!
I look down at the earth from space. It was silent, silent in a way that made you feel queasy. I stare down at the moonlit Earth. The view from the rocket was good but I had never seen the Earth from this angle. The Earth was so close I felt like I was touching it. There were stars all around the Earth. I went back to the rocket knowing I will never see the Earth like that again.
