Dear Major Peake,

I am writing to inform you that I want to apply to go into space because it was a dream of mine when I was a young boy.

I am the right person for the game because I am a very fit and healthy person because I only eat a little bit of sugar and a group of fruits and vegetables. Also I love sport such as football, basketball, rugby and tennis, that’s shows I am a fit child so I am the right person for the job because in space people do not want lazy kids they want active children like ME!!

You also might say I am too young! But I am a very easy person to work with and I can speak Russian also that I can work with wires because I am a training engineer when I grow up! And that it is going to be easy for me to work with the wires.

Finally to sum up I just wanted to say I am a really good person to go up into space because I am inspired to go up there and do my best


Yours Sincerely

Lloyd Addai     

CHAPTER 3 - Launch day


Dear Diary,


As I gaze through the porthole on our planet, I’m struck by the technology that delivered us to the space station. Today when just 100 years ago the horse was still the common form of transport. Just 24 hours ago, it took me 6 years of preparation trying to be the best English astronaut ever lived.

 I had to go to Russia and speak Russian to communicate with my partners (teammates) I felt like there was treasure ever single moment. When the rocket landed I felt this is it. The dream of my moment was finally here I really need to show off my skill. I had a conversation with my group talking about what experiments we were going to do there. Life in space was so cool and I loved it, so I could go up in space myself and my crew had to research about space and was 0G (0 gravity). The journey to the space station was brilliant, and when I strapped myself checking if my rocket had the power to sore through the sky and ready to go. I felt extraordinary to feel the power going through me.


As I contemplated through the porthole, the rocket was so fast it was up to 1100mph (minutes per hour) which was really fast, I couldn’t even think, I was so dizzy and my crew could not even concentrate. When I landed on space I used the famous space phrase from Neil Armstrong “1 small step for man 1 giant leap for mankind.” Space was so cool and humungous it was so wide and tall, this was a dream come true, my crew and l had been waiting for this moment for years and years, now this was treasure to my heart. I could not believe I am here. IN SPACE!!! This was a dream. I could not believe this is happening to me I WISH I COULD BE HERE IN SPACE FOREVER!!!
