Dangerous situation in space - level 2
There was an accident on the International Space Station which could have ended in the death of an astronaut.
A liquid, which looked like water, started to build up inside the astronaut's helmet. Nobody knew where the water was coming from. They had to cancel a space mission and help the astronaut. They took off his helmet and they soaked up the water.
The astronaut is the first Italian who ever walked in space. Hopefully, everything will be fine next time.
Difficult words: liquid (material like water or milk), build up (become more and more) soaked up (clean up).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
