A trip to space, I am set.
You have the choice of travelling to space for a week, or spending a week on an exploration vessel diving the depths of the ocean. What do you choose and why?
Having the opportunity to travel to space will be a dream come true for me, I haven't been in the sky before so you can imagine what flying to space would mean for me. It has always been a childhood dream for me, I tried joining the Air force for three years even though that won't get me into space but it would still answer some of my unanswered questions,and not having the right connection rubbed disappointment on my face. I want to see things beyond what I have read or what I was taught, I love to see some things than been told this is what it looks like,and seeing what the space looks like is one of them.
I am scared of heights, there are days I hold my life in my mouth when crossing just a taller pedestrian bridge. The speeding cars sometimes usually make me feel like I might fall off the bridge, the silly ideas just build up in my head and make me feel uncomfortable crossing.
Despite my fear, the view of the land from the sky is fascinating to me even though I haven't been up there before, I can tell from just mere pictures. I have many times wondered what the space would look like if just viewing the land from the sky amazes me that much.
I have so many unanswered questions about space, it isn't like I haven't read about them but sometimes, I feel like some things aren't possible and I would just like to confirm some facts by myself. I remember some guys arguing about something related to space on a WhatsApp group, the argument was getting out of hand and I wished I could interfere but everything we know is what we have read about or that has been taught at school, I believe a lot but when it comes to things about the atmosphere or space, I some times doubt if those things are true.
When I was a kid, I saw an object falling from the sky late in the evening. I didn't know what it was but it was bright so I thought it would be a star, I ran in the direction to see what it was but I never found it. I was curious and asked a school the next day, my teacher told me it might be a shooting star and she said a star can't fall like that because it is bigger than the earth.
I didn't understand until I grew to read more about stars and everything confuses me more, the earth and other planets, how they are hanging in space, their shapes, the moon, sun, and many other things are what I will like to see for myself and if one week is not enough, I will buy more time to do so.
I want to see the world from space and explore it, I want to get answers and be sure of everything I have read about, it will be awesome to be able to clear people's curiosity about what's up there.
I have read a few articles about gold being found in space, I might be lucky enough to find some while exploring space; there is nothing wrong with returning with some kilos of pure gold.
Elon Musk's space project is fascinating to the ear, it would be one of the things I want to see in space.
With zero gravity in space, I am wondering how they are building, or should I use the word constructing? I might not be able to get to space when the project is done because it will cost millions to go there but I can get an idea of what it looks like for once.
