A couple months ago we heard that Tim Peake was going to the moon! Everyone was super excited to watch it live. “Today is going to be the day that the rocket blasts off!” everyone repeated that sentence at school today.
When we came home from school, we switched on the TV to watch it. “Why is it taking so long?” My annoying little sister sighed.
After 10 long minutes we started to see the flames coming out of the rocket very slowly. “What happened?” I asked, “It just won’t blast off!” But finally, after another few minutes it did.
