It was a very exciting day at the International Space Station. The world’s favorite space shuttle was about to lift off. “5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0!” the speakers boomed out. Then the rocket lifted off for the moon. As it left the earth’s atmosphere the pilot spotted the emergency light. “Look up! Can you see the huge asteroid field in our path which could send us on a one way trip back to earth?” They swerved, dodged and stopped until a huge asteroid hit the engine which exploded into pieces. Then the ship started plummeting to the earth! But the escape pod was released.
