Living in Space
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you went to space? Have you thought how fun it would be? Because if you have you are wrong it is not all fun and games. You don't just get picked to go in space. You have to pass a lot of tests and you have to meet the requirements they have for you. It is a lot of work. Once you get in space it gets easier. It is pretty much the same to living on earth but some of it is not.
Living in space is almost like living on earth. For example you still have to take showers although it might be a little different. You have to vacuum the water out when your done. You also have to eat (of course) and work on the rocket and you have to sleep. This might be funny but you also have to do your laundry. Your not getting out of it up there. But most importantly you have to have fun.(And make sure you complete you mission.
Eating in space is really the most like Earth. You can get all you normal food because you get a oven (but you could probably just heat it up by sticking it outside facing the sun). You also have a fridge to keep your food cold. Astronauts are probably thankful for this because they used to get their food out of a tube! Do you want to here something else interesting? When you use salt and pepper you have to eat it in liquid form! So eating in space is not exactly like earth but it is better then nothing.
It seems like sleeping in space would be really fun. Because there is no gravity so there is no upside down or normal. So astronauts could just buckle themselves to a wall in their sleeping bags and be sleep fine. The only bad part is that the excitement of space can mess up your sleeping pattern.
So maybe living in space is not what you expected or maybe it is. But know you know a little bit more about space then you did before.
