We had to train to become astronauts in a stomach turning plane to experience weightlessness!

Then we waited to see who had been picked for the mission.

Duncan was sad that he hadn’t been chosen, but wait a moment, I think I just saw his face in the moon landing craft! Am I right – is that him?

Together we all saw an earth rise and set.

We were able to appreciate our wonderful planet earth.
