ISS Downlink Winner: Cindy Borja
Cindy Borja is a 2nd grader at Wascher Elementary School in Lafayette, Ore. She submitted the following entry to the Museum’s ISS Downlink contest in order to win a seat at the question and answer session with astronauts on Jan. 19.
I would like to go to space to see different planets. I would really like to see Jupiter’s great red spot. I would also love to see half of the solar system. Because some planets are cold and some are hot. If I were to go to space, rockets point would be red. The bottom would be blue, like some toy rockets. I would like to visit the International Space Station to visit Astronots, and ask about what they know about some stars and planets so I can learn some more about stars and planets. And I say if I went to space I would like to see the flaming red hot sun. I would fly to space in my rocket. First I check if the battery and engin of the rocket is full. If it is I’ll fly to space. If it isin’t, I’ll fix it then then go to space. I would ask the astronot. What do you eat in the space station? Where and how do you sleep inside the space station?
