Space plane without wings - level 1
Experts in Europe make a space plane. They are going to send it into space. It has no wings.
It is important. People want to use it many times. It will study re-entry.
It is going to fly without people. It will fly for 100 minutes. It will fly 450 kilometres into the air. Then it will fall. It will get information.
It will fall in the ocean. A ship will pick it up.
Difficult words: wing (the part on a plane that helps it fly in the air), re-entry (when something which is in space comes back to Earth), be going to/will + do something (do something in the future).
