Saturday 0900 hours (9.00am) my Dad woke me up with a clattering of space craft bits dropping at the foot of my bed. Molly and I went to investigate what he had brought. I thought at first he was teasing us because he had brought one large cardboard box, three bits of construction paper, two bicycle helmets, some paints, sticky tape and a pair of safety scissors. I had to remind him that we wanted to go to outer space not just sit in a box in our room!
It looked like the adventure was over before it could even begin. However, Molly had a cunning plan. We would find some real space craft diagrams and plans on the internet and buy the materials to build it online with my Dad’s credit card!
