. Practically everywhere in the spaceship there was places for sleeping. All around the spaceship there we're feeling of nervousness and excitement. After the first day everyone got used to the rocket and space and everyone was a bit more used to space, but a few people were really freaking out like Léa and Sophia they were kinda crazy at first. I really liked to look at Earth and see how much smaller it got from my view after each of the hours. My favorite thing to do was float around and do things I could only do in space. Everybody did trick competitions doing quadruple back flips and other thing in zero gravity. It was cool to watch, but even cooler to do! I played with my putty and spinners all the time and watched TV on my computer when I was bored. We ate foods that are kind of strange, but really interesting to try. In space we played cards with no gravity and just let our cards float around and we played war, but instead of picking random card each person started touching a wall and then flew in looking for the best cards, and then after they finished with their cards they would mix them all up again. It was really hard because all the cards where going in every direction and you really just had to randomly grab a card (if you even could!) and see if it was a good card.
At the end of the third day we all compared how big the earth looked when we took off, to how big it looked right then. At the end of each day we celebrated our small success and played games and had lots of fun until we all got to tired, and went to sleep. We saw all kinds of really cool and interesting things. We got to see constellations from a much closer and better angle, and we saw the space stations that have been there for many years. We even said hi to the people in the space stations! We video chatted with our families and we told them all about our experiences and showed them tricks in zero gravity. We saw the sun from the spaceship and it looked much smaller because we were going away from it. We could see other planets and their moons and thing no naked human eye has ever seen before! It was weird to think that anywhere and everywhere we went we were the first! Then in the fourth day a big part of the rocket fell of and I was really scared until I learned that we only needed that part for take off on Earth. We looked through telescopes in the spaceship and saw a really clear view of Mars. We started looking at lots of nearby stars and mapping and studying them so we could send that new information to Nasa. We observed lots of stars just for fun as well. Then on the sixth day we saw an asteroid field about 10 mile away and got scared but then we calculated the velocities of all the asteroids but then learned that we were safe. During the sixth day I felt really sad and homesick because I haven’t seen my family in real life in a somewhat long time, and I knew I could possibly never truly see them again. Then at the end of the seventh day we had a big party and that reminded me what our trip to Mars was all about: Making Mars better for the future, having fun exploring, and colonizing Mars. Then I video chatted with my family again and then went to bed feeling happy and proud that I survived a week in space!
