Space Kids – The Journey of Hope

Young person with leadership qualities wanted to lead a child-only mission into space. Full training provided. Please apply.

“Even twelve-year-olds can apply,” said Josh.

Sophie gasped. “Child only? They want children to go into space without adults?”

“Yep! It says here – Space Command needs to train and then observe the best young astronauts for a routine mission to learn how kids will cope,” replied Josh, before turning back to his friends. “I hope they give us laser cannons! Maybe I could go and find aliens and start an intergalactic war.”

Josh laughed hysterically at his own comment. Sophie raised an eyebrow and backed away from the conversation, but goosebumps were rising all over her arms. Her mind was racing.
