Space Undies

Undies Invade Outer Space!

When the space shuttle Discovery lifted off last month, it was carrying a human guinea pig with the crew!

Astronaut Koichi Wakata is the first Japanese Astronaut to have a long stay in the International Space Station. His visit will last three months long.

Since there are no washing machines aboard the space station, Wakata had to take enough clothes to last for his entire stay – which means a whole lot of underwear and socks!

Wakata will report on the state of his underwear, wire himself with sensors, and perform tests like arm wrestling to help scientists back on Earth understand the effects of living in space.

    • Gameboys for video game fun.
    • Silly Putty, no, seriously.

    Well, I'm not sure if any of you knew, (I might have told Alpha T, but I don't remember if I did) there was an incident which happened at our school. I was a few doors away when it happened, but a person, who was in her class, stabbed a teacher, who I knew and loved, in front of a group of seniors getting ready for their GCSE's. I remember the screaming and commotion caused as she screamed for her pupils to get out. A girl came into my class, screaming that Mrs Maguire had been stabbed.  We saw our teacher rush out of the room.  That day, we were escorted to lessons by teachers. We weren't allowed to go anywhere unless a teacher told us... We were made to stay at the school the whole day, and we were all so worried. Mrs Maguire was a well lived teacher you see. The teachers told us that an 'incident occurred' and we shouldn't worry. The general public knew she died before us... The press were all over the outside of the school, taking photos of us...  (I don't wanna stray too far from the topic) but the guy who did it does deserve the death penalty. I don't care what the cost is and I don't quite care if I'm honest. He killed a teacher that I knew and loved, and I'm sure you would agree that you'd feel the same in that situation... I do. He only got 20 years, (which is apparently life here in the UK.) :angry
