Hi from the school in Funäsdalen in Sweden!
We take a part in this competition for the first time ever.
We have done a lot of the trainings already. The things you can do here when you are training like an astronaut is:
You can take a bath in a pool. If you do, then you train your zero-gravity. The pool is at Hotel Funäsdalen.
Because in the space, your gravity will go to zero. Just like in the pool, you will just float around.
To land on the moon, you must have strong legs and to jump even stronger. You can jump skipping-rope to train your legs to jump. This we do in the sportshall.
We have also sorted food and simulated urine.
On the sports we have jumped to the moon and other fun stuff.
We have trained our eye -handreaktion by using a ruler.
We have also looked at tortillias.
Last week our class had a guest from The Swedish Space Agency, Rymdstyrelsen. His name is Johan Köhler and he had also worked on ESA: He showed us a model of ISS. It was really COOL. He also showed us two solars (solceller) that had been placed at the Hubble telescope. He told us lots about space and we had many questions that he answered. We learned a lot and it was fun.
