Dear Major Peake,


I want to apply to go to space because it has always been a dream of mine. Every day I gaze at the stars and wonder what it would be like to see it close up and go up to space to see if aliens really exist.

The reason you should pick me is because I have learnt chemistry in science and I am very clever. I’m healthy and strong. I get along very easily with people. I guarantee you should pick me and that it wouldn’t be a mistake because I have got a degree in science and I am good in small spaces. I have practised for six years to get to this moment. I have studied medicine and chemistry because in case if anyone is six one the way.    

You might say we have people that can do the same as you but are they reliable? And I have practised for six years for this moment wake up practise wake up practise repeat and passed all of my objectives to go to space I one hundred percent sure that I am ready to go to space. You might reply and say can you speak five languages Spanish, English, Russian and more.

Please pick to go to space I have passed all the requirements to go to space it has always been a dream of mine. You will pick me if you are smart!

Yours Sincerely,


Ali Tijani

CHAPTER 3 - Launch day

Wednesday 13 January 2016

Dear Diary,


As I came out, the porthole on, our planet, I’m shocked by technology that delivered as to the space station today when just 100 years ago the horse was still the common form of transport. Just 24 hours ago, I was in crew quarters at our landing base in Kazakhstan getting ready for the journey of a lifetime.

I need a space suit to go to space and I must speak Russian to communicate with my space partners. Safety is important in space so I will be taking lessons to know when a micro meteorite comes near. To go to space I need to be healthy and fit also, go to health classes. In preparation it takes 6 years in training to be an astronaut.  

I was so ecstatic to find out that I was going trust me I went bonkers. I was so confident, I had no slip of concentration and I wasn’t even frightened. I’m ready for the big step to go to the moon. I knew it was, once in a lifetime opportunity. The training was tiring, we were hungry and hot. I felt so important first child in space and I want to remember all about space.

I was little a bit scared when I felt the velocity. I strapped in my seat. From the small window I could see the colour changes because we were going high up in space. As we were docking I greeted everyone, as the countdown happened my heart raced to the limit 3 2 1 blast off we set to the ISS.

Life in space

First thing I did when I reached the ISS I called my family and friends. Life in space make your ears and brain feel weird and tea taste nice. Space is the best thing that ever happened to me trust me if you get a chance to go to space Ill take it you’ll enjoy.
