Life In Space

Life in Space


Have you ever wanted to see the stars up close? Have you ever wanted to feel weightless? If you answered yes to those questions,  then you might be interested in a job as a astronaut. However, the job of being an astronaut is very hard. Not only is being a an astronaut is very hard on their body, and they need to train a lot before going into space, and they have difficult jobs to do while they are in space.

First, being in space is hard on the astronaut’s body. According to source #2, “Astronaut’s other muscles and their bones can also get weaker.”  On earth, we run around and exercise with gravity which helps our muscles and bones grow strong. In space, there is no gravity , so astronauts have to exercise extra hard to keep their muscles and bones strong. If you see astronauts headed to space with a treadmill. Now you know why.

Next, not only do their bodys get weak, astronauts have to train for hundreds of hours before heading to space. According to source  #1, “ Astronauts train for hundreds of hours.’’ And study for years before going to space. Before going to space astronauts also have to take lessons in scuba diving, because it feels the the same in space while you are fluting.

Finally, astronauts have difficult jobs to do in space says source #2. For instance some astronauts learn to fix things in space with no gravity. And learn medical scales so that they can heal people if they get hurt. And even some people have to learn to fly the spacecraft. They are called pilots. And some have to learn to be leaders.

Astronauts do not have it easy. As you have read, just going into space can harm a astronaut’s body. Even before going into space, they have to train for hours to prepare. Once they are in space they have difficult jobs in space. So next time you look up at the stars and see a satellite drifting through the night sky, remember all the hard work astronauts did to make that happen.

Do you know anything about lions? Well, get ready to here some facts: The nickname for the lion is “the King of the Jungle”.  The lion has both beauty and strength. Lions are very colorful and they have light yellow-brown coats. Mature male lions are unique among big cats due the thick brown or black manes that encircle necks and protect them while fighting.


How We Can Save Lions

 We can stop zoos from apshing them, we can stop pouching lions. We can stop canned hunting. We can help to restore more lions. We can rescue more lions. We can wake up the humans. We can save the habitat.

 Do you now any other ways to save the lion habitat?

The Coolest Invention Of 2015

I think the Artiphon was the coolest invention of 2015. What’s cool about the Artiphon?

It’s cool that you can make sounds of different of instruments on one device like a guitar, piano, drum pad, synthesizer and many other instruments. Something else I liked about the Artiphon is that you can plug it into a smartphone, an iPad, or computer and take it anywhere. It’s easier to carry than a lot of other instruments. You can even turn the volume up and down.

          What’s do you think is the coolest invention of 2015?

My Favorite Book The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane

My favorite book is the Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. It is sad, and funny, and exciting. The book is about the main character Edward Tulane, a porcelain rabbit. His journey begins when he is seperated from Abilene. He is tossed over board and rescued by a fisherman. He is given to the fisherman’s wife who loves and care for him but Lolly steals Edward and takes him to the dump. He is rescued from the dump by a hobo, Bull and his dog Lucy.  They travel by train a mean man throws Edward off the train then he is picked up by a old woman who uses him as a scarecrow.

Can you guess what happens next?

What is your favorite book?
