SPACE DISASTER The night was chilly. I remained still, refusing to shiver.Even my breathing was slow and regulated,so as not to mist in the unnaturally cold air-though my heart wanted to hammer its way out of my chest. “Commander, Commander Come in. I repeat come in. We are going to start experiment number 1. “Stated the astronaut as he stared apprehensively into space. Max has been in charge of NASA’s port for the last eighteen months and was currently on a daily spacewalk with his friend. As they were outside the space station he saw a massive meteor heading towards them. “Will it hit the station? “He whispered to himself.Dramatically, a few minutes later, the astronauts question was unfortunately answered. The meteor shower struck the space station like a bull attacking a matador! The pieces of scrap metal flew violently around the truss of the station making it shake uncontrollably .Desperately, Max and his fellow astronaut, Roger, grasped onto the thick metal frame. “Clasp on tight “implored Max to his comrade. However, a large meteor was hurtling towards them.The space station exploded, sending debris into the darkness .Unpredictably, the robotic arm was spinning like a crazy fatal fairground ride.Suddenly the huge metal arm changed orientation. It was swinging towards Max! He had no choice. He had to rapidly release his security belt from the ship. “Aaah!” Max thundered as he was sucked helplessly into the boundless of space. What could become of the astronaut?As he drifted further away. Max’s eyes began to fill with tears of sadness. What would happen to his family below on Earth? Would he ever hold his daughter again? He thought of his loving wife, which was agonizing. What about his mission? Max floated further into space; thoughts of home besetting him. Then suddenly he saw a rocket heading towards him. He had an extremely happy grin on his face. Then someone mysteriously came out of the unusually shaped pod and shouted “Come on in, I’ll take you back to Earth. It’s not that far from here.”Max grasped onto the space pod and flung himself inside the hatch. Embracing the alien, he cried, “How did you find me?” “Luckily, I saw you floating around in the middle of space,” explained the alien. Well, let’s take you home to Earth!” cheered a jubilant alien. As they entered Earth’s atmosphere, Max felt a buzz of excitement and happiness. They were safe and they were going to be reunited with their loved ones. Despite this, he had an inner sadness and frustration that he never completed the really important mission at the space station that his boss relied on him to complete. Putting these thoughts to the back of his mind. He continued to head towards home and their families and friends.Unfortunately going back to earth wasn’t at all happiness. His comrade, Roger had not made it back to earth. The NASA team had tried sending satellite cameras to space but Roger was not to be foundWHAT AN ADVENTURE THEY HAD HAD!
