A JOURNEY TO THE MOON

      

 

 

I loved the sight.It was so dreamlike that I thought I am sleeping, but I was not. It was the most beautiful thing in this whole universe. A rose garden was also nothing in front of it.  The stars twinkled in glee. I was indeed in love with it. It was the moon!!!! The cool breeze blowing made the atmosphere happy. The clouds flying past it made it a even a greater sight. It smiled as if knowing that I was watching it. :) :) I could feel the contentment of my heart as I saw it. ..

Just then I was a little taken aback to see a house FLYING and speeding towards our house!!!!!It landed just in front of me. Then an astronaut came out and took of her helmet. Oh! so this was a SPACECRAFT!!!! :) :) :) She smiled at me and I smiled in return. She asked me if  I would like to join her on a voyage to the moon. How could I refuse this golden oportuanity!!!! I went in the Spacecraft with her and Found another Astronaut there. He was a man and he told me that his name is Rohan. I was glad to meet both of them  The woman who was called Rani, told me that I would need to wear a space suit if I wanted to go with them in Space. She  gave me a golden spacesuit to wear. They both said that I looked very smart in it. :) :) :)

Rohan switched the engine and Rani soon started the countdown…..10….9…8….7…6….5….4…3…2….1……BLAST OFF!!!!

Up we went in the space!:) :) :)

 Rani gave me a camera with which I would click photos. We landed on the moon after about an hour. I ran out as soon as the engine stopped. All my life I had always been looking up in the sky to see either the moon or the sun. Today I was looking up to see my dear home planet EARTH !!! :) :) :) I was looking at Earth just the way perhaps God looks at Earth :) :) :)

We all clicked photos of the diffrent planets that we could see, I picked up a moon rock as I wanted to carry it back with me to Earth.I was having a lot of fun. Just then Rani called out for me as it was the time we should return back to the earth. Rani and Rohan entered the  flying house  and I said that I am coming after clicking this photo of the view of earth from the moon. As I was returning to the  flying house, suddenly I fell down and landed in a crater on the moon surface. :( :( :(  

I started to cry. Rohan and Rani rushed to help me. I stopped crying and looked around I saw that I had fallen from my bed and my mother and father were standing trying to help me up. !!!!!!

I got up I told them that I am all right and they returned to their room. I looked at the clock. It was 12:00 in the night. I thought that I must have been dreaming all this while and felt very sad that I had not actually travelled to the moon and back :( :( :(

 But just then I saw there was a small rock lying on the floor where i had fallen down from the bed. WHAT?????!!! was it the same Moon rock that i had picked up fron the surface of the moon???

I was totally bewildered.

So was it a dream …………….. or was it not?  What do you think? Post your comments for everybody to know your thought          

 

 

Book Review: GEORGE’S SECRET KEY TO THE UNIVERSE

‘ GEORGE’S SECRET KEY TO THE UNIVERSE” is written by the famous scientist STEPHEN HAWKING and his daughter LUCY HAWKING

This book is about George whose parents belive that technology is really harmful and really useless. So George does not has any modern facilities from light bulbs to air conditioner in his house. Wanting to live a purer, simpler life, they washed their clothes with hand and did not own a car and lit the house with candles in order to avoid using any electricity. This all was designed to give George a natural and improving upbringing, free from toxins, additives, radiation and other such evil phenomena.

One day in search of his lost pig, George came across the house next to his. All the people in the neighbourhood thought that the house was a magical house as it belonged to an old man who once vanished and never returned.

George followed the footprints of his pig and entered his house. The house belonged to a scientist named Eric. George liked him and his daughter Annie very much.

Eric had a computer, small and glossy.And its name was ‘COSMOS’. He was the most powerful computer in the world. He could talk and toured george, Annie and Eric around the universe. George learned many things about space.

 Dr. REPPER, George’s teacher and Eric’s enemy stole the Cosmos. Eric got a letter. He rushed in the space to find a new earth but alas he was trapped in a black hole!!!

After many up and downs Annie, Gorge and Susan (Annie’s mum) were able to bring back cosmos and cosmos helped them to bring back Eric.

They all were then able to convince Georg’s parents that technology is not that bad.

Stephen Hawkings has put in some interesting facts and photos related to space and universe between the novel.

The story keeps you interested in the book and the facts and photos about the universe written in a very kid-friendly manner and a simple language, makes you more and more curious about space and science.

I will like to recommend this novel to those who like adventurous or science fiction stories.

IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM -Chapter 4

THE HUMANS LEARN A LESSON!!!

 The planets wanted to teach the humans a lesson. One asteroid  became very angry  at the humans and said, “Enough is enough. I will strike into the Earth and I am going to destroy the humans right now!!…they are NEVER going to improve themselves!!!.” 

None of the planets stopped him ……not even Jupiter!!! 

They even said ,” Go asteroid and come back only after gaining victory!”

Meanwhile , the scientists on the Earth discovered that a giant asteroid is coming towards them. They became very worried and thought that life on the Earth will be finished in four /five years from now!!! 

” How to save the plants, animals, birds, and ourselves? ” asked one of the scientist in a meeting which was held on this topic.

One day an announcement spread in the whole world that——’ the scientists need a volunteer who would go in the space & destroy that giant asteroid’.

No one was  brave enough but one poor and old carpenter agreed to do this and put his life in danger.

Only in one week his training was over. He along with two of his friends and a well trained pilot went on their dangerous journey.

The asteroid was very much far from the Earth.  On their journey they met the different planets who told them why the asteroid is coming towards the Earth. the carpenter said to the Sun,” I am helpless Sun. What can we do????  . we will have to destroy that asteroid as we we have to save our lives. But keep faith on me, oh mighty Sun.I will make the humans realize their mistake.”

Just then they saw the asteroid coming towards their spacecraft.The planets tried to stop the asteroid,  the asteroid too wanted to stop, but he could not because his speed was too fast!!! He said, ” Please you destroy me . If you will not do so you will be dead. And about me? I will be reborn.” 

 For a moment the carpenter refused to do so  but all the other planets also agreed with what the asteroid had said .When they also forced him to do so the three friends went out of the spacecraft leaving the pilot inside.

They together, made a big hole in the asteroid and put a nuclear bomb in it. then they swiftly ran back to their space craft . 

After a few minutes  the bomb blasted and the asteroid was finished!!a while later he was reborn!! He returned to his place. The carpenter thanked the planets and the asteroid and returned to the Earth.

They all were warmly welcomed.The Carpenter told the humans what all happened in the space. He told everything that the planets and the Sun had told him. Humans were begining to realise how much damage they had been doing to the Earth!!!

 He also said,” You call the Earth your mother Earth, right? But do you know that you never show her any respect, care or love that  your Mother Earth deserves!!! Can you tell me what have YOU done for all the love and care your mother Earth has given you???”

After this the humans started improving themselves. Seeing this improvement, the planets were very happy and never forget to thank the kind  carpenter !!! Now the planets never criticized the humans!! The humans also lived happily!!!

IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM-Chapter 3

:(  DEAR PLUTO’S FAREWELL  :(

Humans continued their progress in the field of science & technology.     They were still criticized by each  and every object in the solar system. As Ihave told you that Jupiter had a hope that   humans will realize their mistake &  improve theirselves, so he never criticized the humans.

The solar system was unaware of what these scientists were planing to do to their most dearest friend and the last planet, Pluto.

 Scientists observed that Pluto was much too small to be classified as a planet!!

On the Earth  the scientists were trapped in a big web . they could not decide what to do about Pluto.  

In the solar system, a river of bad words against the humans was flowing continuously. The humans never got any knowledge of all this.

   The clever Sun had appointed a cloud to give them the information of what all was happening onthe Earth.   Once the cloud messenger who was very worried came to him. Seeing how worried he was Sun asked,” Dear cloud, what has happened ? Why are you so much worried ? What is happening on the Earth? Is every thing alright ?’

” No …….no your majesty,…….. the humans ……have made an announcement……… that ……….. that…..our pluto…………………..is no longer a………..a………. planet!!” The cloud said in tears. :(   :(  :(

The solar system went so dumbfounded as a statue . Just then cries from Jupiter were heard,”I am really sorry friends, that I said that humans are good. I was wrong They are the worse than the worst……….”    

Poor Pluto was as quite as if he was dead!!!!!

  Well, god knows what all pains & sufferings Pluto  was going through at that moment. :(  :(  :(  :(

IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM-Chapter 2

Life Begins on Earth

 Pluto was having fun time along with his new friends.

Just then Lord Brahma along with some other Gods came there & stopped their conversations.

“Lord, why have you come here?” worried Earth asked.

“Child, we have come to give you a gift” said Vishnu ji.

“Gift?” asked all the planets who were astonished.

Brahma ji added,” Yes, dear Earth, I am sending life on you. For its survival, I am gifting you a thick layer of atmosphere containing gases like oxygen & carbon dioxide etc and water, trees etc and many different types of creatures will come and live on you. Can we trust you?”

 Earth was very happy and proud that out of all the nine planets, only she was selected for this important task!!! So she said,” My lord, you can trust me. I will be grateful for this gift. I promise you that I will take care of the entire species well.” All the Gods were very happy and after giving their blessings to Earth, they vanished.

Everything happened as the Gods had told Earth. The Earth had so much water in its seas, oceans, that all her friends started calling her the Blue Planet.

In the beginning, Earth and the humans lived happily but slowly the humans became careless & selfish. And as a result the Ozone layer was destroyed and the Earth was also harmed in many other ways. :( :( :( 

All the planets were very worried about what to do? Earth was in such a big danger! They discussed about it all the time.

The Sun said,” I am very angry, I will not let even a small ray of myself come out and reach the Earth.”

“But dear Sun, we should punish the wicked humans but not in this way. Because, if not even a ray will come out of you, we all will also die & even you will blast off!!” said Mercury.

 ”Friends, I am seriously speaking that the humans were good enough in the Stone Age.” said Pluto. “They have not used their intelligence well.”

The whole solar system criticized the humans. But Jupiter had a kind heart and thought that the humans will improve.

Once an asteroid became very angry at the humans and wanted to strike on the Earth and destroy the humans. So he set off to do it.

But Jupiter came in between to stop him with the help of his strong gravitational field. The asteroid could not escape from Jupiter’s gravity& was forcefully pulled towards Jupiter& hit him which caused the red spot on the giant planet, Jupiter.

Angrily he said,” Fool, can you see this big spot? Tell me whether you went to destroy the humans or the Earth? I am not angry with you for this spot but for your foolishness of not thinking of what harm you would have caused on Earth.”

The asteroid understood his fault and sought forgiveness from Jupiter and Earth and sadly went back to the place where it stood shame-facedly.

     From this sacrifice of Jupiter we should learn that ‘ Earth is our home’ and we fools are destroying it ourselves!!!

 We should save it, not destroy it!!!

IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM-Chapter 1

  THE BIRTH OF PLUTO

Many thousand years back………. every object in the solar system talked and all the planets, Sun, and other objects were great friends! Till that time Pluto had not taken birth & Earth also had no life on it. The time spent peacefully.

One day as usual the solar system was filled with laughter, when, an asteroid of some other galaxy came this way. And by chance hit on one of the moons of the last planet, Neptune.As a result the moon broke into many big & small pieces .One of the pieces flew and settled far away.

All this happened so fast that no one could make out what had happened!!!

But Sun said,” My dear friends, there’s nothing to panic about. He is our new friend & a new member in the solar system!!!!

The planets asked, ” What are we going to call him???

Sun thought for some minutes”……..Hmmm……!!!”

 And then he said,”I got it!!! We are going to call him  Pluto!!!! Welcome to our family, dear little Pluto!”

  :D :D :D

Pluto was made the member of the solar system. He was taught how to rotate and revolve. All the planets became his friends!!!                    

 And thus was the ‘ birth of Pluto’    

:D :D :D
