My favourite snake is nuts.

idont think I can be an astronaut, even ilove to see the sky , clouds , other side of the world but I prefer to watched throw the t.v. but not in the real place .

I'm very proud of Samantha Cristoforetti, Italian astronaut! I'd like to be an astronaut, but I think is not easy because it' s necessary to study a lot of mathematics and physics. My favorite snacks are every kind of nuts and dry fruits. And also potato chips!

It would be great to be an astronaut, but I'm afraid a little old for it, and I'm sure astronauts are required of perfect physical fit as well.
In any case, I would enjoy to be at a space station, watching Earth from out of it and watching the stars and de Solar System a little closer to them.
And what about gravity zero? Wow, that must be the best of all. It's fun watching in the video how well Samantha manages to take and show the snacks while there's no gravity.

I think no, I have panic in closed places, so I couldn't be an astronaut, but I love snacks and my favorite one is pocorn.

When I was a child I wanted to be a cosmonaut. At that time, I watched how the Russian Space Station, MIR operates from my TV screen. My favourite snack are potato chips, fried chicken wing and fried peanuts.

I am not sure if I would like to be an astronaut because they pass through such a hard training and I do not know if I have the discipline for that. My favorite snack is ham and cheese sandwich.

I wouldn't like to be an astronaut because i think their life are so boring. I like to eat apple as snack.
