Tim Peake: Live Launch

This morning, Year 4 eagerly darted into the classroom to watch the amazing launch of Tim Peake  into space. He was going to the International Space Station to further our scientific understanding.

Rapidly, the huge rocket ejected from the colossal launch pad and thrusted up into the atmosphere. It looked as if fire balls were being propelled towards the smoke covered Earth.

We watched Tim inside the rocket being shaken vigorously as if it was getting friction burns. Inside, there was a dangling rod that floated when they reached zero gravity. Cramped, squashed and squeezed as if he was in a cocoon, Tim laid on his back.

It was astonishing!
