Dear major Peake,


I want to apply to go to space because I am eager to find out if there are life forms, also to explore the different planets, and educate the stars.

I think I am the right person for the competition because I am hard working and I have dedication, also I’m easy to get along with.

I’m a great to the team and a good example to the team. I know you might say I am young, or thinking what can a ten year old do.  But can do lots.

Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to apply to take me into space.

Yours sincerely,


CHAPTER 3 - Launch day

30 March 2018

Dear Diary,

What a day! The journey took ages, the scene was beautiful from the window. I am so exhausted, I was strapped in the seat for 24 hours.As I gazed out the porthole to look at our planet, I was struck by the technology that delivered us here, but I miss my family. 

It is so cool, you can float! It’s like swimming. However, when you hit something, you have to get used to it, it’s not a big deal.My Russian speaking has been useful and helped me understand my teammates.

Tomorrow I am hoping that I can do interesting experiments so that I can learn about space. I also hope I could do some training to learn how to use the technology on the space station.  

I'm thankful  to the team and the people who encouraged me. Also, for the support they gave me and my parents, I’m so pleased.

I’m really happy.
