Instead, she focused on the colorful blinking lights of the console before her.
Biting the corner of her lip, she feared that this time her curiosity had gotten her in over her head. A deep voice startled her. The shuttle broke free from the launch pad like a wild bull breaking out of a rodeo chute.

And Christina was its rider! Every bone in her body sh-sh-shook and her teeth ch-ch-chattered. Now she knew. It was scary, but exciting! She tried to turn her head to see how her younger brother Grant and her grandparents Mimi and Papa were handling their own fear and excitement, but the powerful force of shooting into space kept her pinned firmly to her seat. Her cheeks felt like pancakes.
See a Problem?
Christina had traveled the world with her brother and grandparents, but she never dreamed this trip would be so out of this world! She was traveling faster than sound! The shuttle commander spoke again. We are at 50 nautical miles and you are now officially astronauts! The squeezing force slowly released her, and Christina felt her arms get lighter and lighter until they floated. Suddenly, Christina wondered if the shuttle had brakes. Christina braced herself for an explosive collision. Doors flew open. People unbuckled their seatbelts. A firm tap on her shoulder made Christina jump.
She wished she was really on the Space Station.
International Space Station
Kennedy said in that he wanted the United States to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon after he and Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo 11 there in Space Center who helped those men reach the moon.
atsigcire.tk I might write a space mystery after this visit! This was a visit Christina and Grant had anticipated for months. When an old friend, Judy, and her husband, Kent, invited Mimi and Papa to visit their Houston ranch, Mimi eagerly accepted. There was no way she could oppose her grandkids, who begged to come along and learn about space exploration. The government instituted a ban to the site after these findings, effectively prohibiting any further assessments. Sometime after the crash, it emerged that the plane was carrying a Picasso painting, almost 50kg in cash as well as 5kg of jewels including a diamond from the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
None of these were ever recovered. For 1 year after the accident an exclusion zone extending 2 kilometres was set up around the crash site. While it is possible that none of the valuable items may have survived the plane crash, their eventual destination and whether someone may have already located them, remains a mystery. On 17 December , a private jet landed at Wilson Airport in Nairobi, Kenya just half an hour before it was due to close for the day. There were five people on board the twin-engine jet which sported a foreign registration.
Three days later the plane departed for Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at half past four in the afternoon. A little more than an hour later on the same day the plane set off again to a new destination, Chad, this time with seven people on board. Now this in itself does not constitute any mystery. However, it was discovered that the plane is owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin who is a Kremlin insider with ties to Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin had been named one of 13 people of interest in the investigations into the US election. The immigration department also refused to reveal the identities of the other passengers on the plane.
This caused quite a commotion in Kenya, because while the plane was expected, there was no word from local security agencies on whether Prigozhin was actually aboard the aircraft.

Rumors spread that Prigozhin, who is part of Wagner Group, wanted to set up security deals in Kenya where training, weapons and electioneering services would be traded for mining rights. Wagner Group has been linked to the murder of 3 journalists of Russian descent in July A month before the plane landed in Nairobi it was reported that Kenya and Russia are working together in developing nuclear power technology.
Earlier in , a photo of kangaroos jumping in the snow in Australia made the rounds on social media. However, that was nowhere near as weird as the phantom kangaroo sightings in the US of all places. The very first sighting was reported in in Wisconsin.
Then after several years of no sightings, Reverend W. Hancock spotted a phantom kangaroo in Tennessee in January along with several other witnesses. This particular kangaroo was blamed for the killing of a dog, chickens and sheep. According to several people who claimed to have seen phantom kangaroos , the creatures are up to 5. Several years later between and , many reported seeing these kangaroos in Minnesota and in hundreds witnessed a kangaroo in Chicago.
Local zoos were contacted during sightings, but no kangaroos were ever reported missing. It is alleged that one of the kangaroos was struck by a car and killed in but both driver and creature disappeared before any investigation could take place. The existence of the circle was first realized in AD. Starting out with stones, the circle now consists of with the tallest being more than 5 metres high.
There is a barrow at the centre of the circle and the diameter of the structure is spread over 55 metres. He noted that the remains of an foot man were found inside the circle and they were immediately covered up again. An excavation of the site in the 30s revealed no remains, neither did further investigations in the 70s.
Assessments have revealed that Mzora was built by the same culture that was responsible for the megaliths in Europe. The circle incorporates a Pythagorean right angle triangle which is the same method used in similar megalithic structures in Britain. As with other megalithic circles it has been theorized that the stones were used as a calendar and for monitoring the incoming seasons.
Others believe that druids worshipped at the stones or that they were landing strips for alien crafts.

Four years earlier, crowds attending the wedding of King Alfonso II of Naples gazed up at the sky in awe as the sun turned dark. Following that day, the weather turned grim in Europe. Germany experienced flooding to the extent that coffins were exposed in cemeteries, whole villages were swept away and in Poland, citizens started traveling by boat as the rain poured relentlessly.
