Snoops Contemplates Space Travel | King's Hall School Taunton

Hi everyone,

This week I have enjoyed some academic challenges and I feel very satisfied as a result. I learned about static electricity in Science Club and watched with sheer fascination as an electric current made my friend’s’ hair stand on end. If I hadn’t recently been to my dog groomer, I think that static running through my curly locks could have had a spectacular effect.

Inspired by my experience, I went away to research dogs and science. Other than discovering some rather alarming facts about cloned dogs, hairless dogs and bionic dogs, I found an interesting article on Laika the Space Dog.
Laika was a female stray from Moscow who selected to travel into space on the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2, which was launched on 3rd November 1957. I also like travelling, but I don’t think I’m brave enough for space voyages just yet! I am, however, looking forward to my trip to the Lake District for half term. I don’t think I will be paddle boarding next week, but I’ll be taking up my post as ‘Duck Watch’ on Lake Windermere.

Wishing you all a restful break.
