I got the call!!!
I have been selected as one of four candidates to be the first echidna in space!
I still can’t believe that the Tea Tree Gully Public Library is conducting a space mission, it’s just incredible!
After my initial excitement subsided, I decided I had better head down to the library to do some research on aeronautics, space craft and the like.
It’s best to be prepared after all.
I selected a DVD on the history of space flight, an encyclopaedia of space craft, a Soyuz capsule service manual and a biography of Neil Armstrong for inspiration.
I wonder what sort of spacecraft I will have the chance at flying? I wish it was the Millennium Falcon! Maybe I could break that 12 parsec record…
Hopefully I will find out more next week when I report for basic training.
