Sitting on my seat heat filled the air. Launch was approaching. In mere seconds we would leave Earth to discover the the mysteries of space.
Anxiously waiting for lift off it felt as if I would explode because of fearing the the historic quest. Would everything go as planned? Suddenly a call cried out for all Astronauts “Ignition”.
Fire shot out of the rocket boosters and a powerful force pushed the rocket into the air. My stomach was shuddering. Petrified of the leaving Earth, the ear shattering explosion made a bright blaze in the sky.
Taking off my seat belt, I looked down at Earth and thought of how dangerous this is but also adventurous. “What a journey this is?!” I said to myself.
