My Day Out In London

At the weekend I went into London to go to the Science Museum. We went on a really fast train.

In the Science Museum we saw the BIGGEST Rocket in the World! The rocket has been into space and was called "Eagle". It was a lander that took Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong into Space in 1969. When I saw it I could not believe my eyes. Then we went to see a model of an Astronaut. His name was Buzz Aldrin and he was the second person to walk on the moon. We also saw a piece of the moon. The museum also told you about how Astronauts lived, breathed, ate and went to the the toilet in Space. They showed you space food that the astronauts would have eaten in Space. There was Tomato Soup, Chicken Salad, Strawberry Cereal Cubes, Coke, a biscuit coloured drink, and a pink drink and a tin of biscuits. You had to add water to the food to make it ready to eat.

Did you know that Astronauts can sleep standing up in space? They have to be strapped into bed to stop them from falling out because there is less Gravity in space than we have on earth.

Next we went to see the OLDEST steam train made in 1814. After a while we went to see Stephenson's Rocket. It was made in 1829 and it was the first Machine ever made! Without it, we wouldn't have things like cars and trains and buses so it was a very important machine.

The last thing we saw was a big globe that showed aeroplanes, street lights and what the world looks like at night from Space. It was amazing.

After we left the Science Museum, we went to a Cafe in South Kensington for lunch.

Next we went to Hyde Park to see Winter Wonderland and then we went to see the Christmas Lights in Oxford Street because my sister Boojam loves Christmas Lights and so do I.

Finally we went home on the train. I had a really nice day in London.
