Rocket Maaaaaaan.


SPACE SCHOOL. omg guys, like best week of my life? It was AWESOME. I met so many amazing people and we did so much. It went to quick. 8 days seems like a while but i did not want to leave.
I won't discuss everything coz i'd be writing a book, so here's some highlights:

~Airkix:This big wind tunnel that simulates free falling out of a plane at 110 mph i think. SO cool, and so much fun, just felt like you were flying!

~Anthony:My group mentor. Yes, he was a highlight. So adorable/geeky/cool/nice. Me and my friends kinda stalked him, and he knew it but he was flattered*sigh* He was not the type of guy i like usually but he was so adorable it was impossible not to like him.

~Bananas:An Anthony story-he was eating a banana at dinner so i was like "Aw guys, Anthony's eating a banana" ao they all turned round to see (don't why that's cute but ah well), but he started eating it reaaaally sexually. Like licking the tip, then slowly sucking it/nibbling it. He was doing this without realising, then noticed we were all pissing ourselves laughing and came over all shy to ask why. Funniest moment ever.

~EADS Astrium:We went to this military building (public not allowed in) where they make satellites and planetary landers. We saw some parts of the Mars Rover being built and all these people in clean suits in clean rooms doing maths and working at different stations, looked so cool. We weren't allowed cameras or phones and we had to wear security passes-now that was cool

~Lectures:All were awesome. Learnt so much new stuff e.g. stuff on black holes, space plasma, death and birth of stars, going to Mars, cryogenics

~Cryogenics:Liquid Nitrogen!!!Used that a LOT in so many experiements, that stuff is cool! Made bombs out of it which exploded like fireworks!

~Rocket Building:They were actually quite real, with a motor and stuff. We had to design and run simulations of our rocket then make the whole thing the next day, and it had to carry a camera that could record footage on the way back to the ground.

~Bonfire/Meteor Observing: We went camping one night so we could observe the recent meteor shower, and saw 5 meteors shoot across the sky!!:D And we had a HUGE bonfire until about 3am where we were all chatting and singing songs for aaaages. When we finally had to go back to our tents i stayed up all night playing poker. I was very tired later on but it was worth it.

~Party/Hanging Out:Had a party on the last night which was awesome, had such good music and smoke and lasers and everything. Stayed up all night again hanging out with everyone and just chatting:) Every night i had a late night. Oohh,one night we were watching a film and i was lying on a sofa with a friend and then Anthony came and lay next to me^_^ LOL.


Okay so i kinda covered a lot, sorry guys.

Haha, it all just sounds so interesting!! How did you get involved in something like that??

Hehe! That's the problem I'd have; I'd be too busy squeeing over sci-fi aspects of it all, lol! XD

LOL yes I do. Thanks. :D
