Life in space - level 1

Life in space - level 1

29-01-2016 15:00

A British astronaut is in space. He films videos. He shows people how to do things in space.

For example, he shows people how to make coffee. He also shows people how to use the toilet.

The space toilet is not like your normal toilet. It has a fan and you pee in a tube. The fan moves the air and the pee into the tube. Do not forget to turn on the fan! If you forget, the pee flies around you.

Difficult words: fan (a things which moves air), pee (to let out the yellowish “water” out of your body), tube (a thin, long thing with space in the middle).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
