Week 3 Space Launch By David Hy

Two years ago I was chosen to be an astronaut. I was very happy as there were more then 2,000 interviews but I had no idea how much work was involved. I had to do a year of very hard work but it was worth it when I got chosen to go to the International Space Station with two other astronauts called Tom and Donagh. Two hours before the launch I put on my spacesuit. Then, Tom, Donagh and I went up to the rocket. We had been waiting there for an hour. Then, mission control told us we couldn’t take off because of the weather. They never should have said yes to hiring me.
