SpaceX Astronauts Return – level 1

10-05-2021 15:00

Four NASA and SpaceX astronauts return from space. They return to Earth. They return in a small spaceship. They cannot come back in the daytime. There are a lot of winds. They return at night. The last time when NASA astronauts do this is in 1968.

Parachutes help them go down to Earth. They return safely. They land into a sea. People in boats wait for them. This is the second time when people go to space with SpaceX.

Difficult words: astronaut (a person who flies in space), return (to come to a place again), space (the area above the atmosphere), parachute (a big cloth which helps a person go down safely from a high place).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
