The Uniqueness of the Outer Space
One of the challeges that is unique to space is the fact that space is a vacuum, which
is a risk for vrious reasons. First, in vacuum, there is no atmosphere and therefore no air
pressure. Without air pressure, the human body has no oxygen to sustain itself. After too
many minutes without oxygen, a person would loses consciousness and eventually die.
Also, in a vacuum aperson’s blood will gradually begin to boil. Finally, without an
atmosphere, the rays of the sun can cause radiation posoning.
Another difficulty that is unique to outer space is the presence of meteors and
micrometeors. These are pieces of rock and metal that are left over from the formation of
the solar system. Many of these objects travel at very high speeds. Under the Earth's
blanket of air, people are usually protected from metor impacts. However, in space,
people and spaceships are vulnerable to collisions with meteors. It is true that the
chance of metor impacts is relatively small, but if even a small micrometeor happens to
collide with a spacecraft, it could cause serious damage.
34-35 Plan an outline about the selection above using a graphic organizer or sentence

Jenny snuggled under for blanket with her eyes wide open.
“I will stay awake. Oh, I want to see the fairy,” she muttered sleepily.
That afternoon in school, her milk tooth had wiggled and turned for the last time. It fell on a page of the
book that Jenny was reading. Now she had a space just as most of her schoolmates had, right in the middle of
her beautiful grin.
Before going to bed that night, Jenny put the tooth under her pillow to see whether a fairy would take it
away and leaved a surprise in its place. She wanted to stay awake, but her eyelids drooped and closed.
The room was still quiet. Then, a tinkle, like the sound of a music box, filled the air. Out of the darkness,
the shiniest little fairy any could imagine, floated into the room. She knelt down beside Jenny’s pillow and found
the hidden tooth.
The fairy dropped the tooth into a golden purse and whispered, “Now I have another pearl for my
queen’s necklace. Thanks to you Jenny. Out of gratitude, I will leave you this coin. It will be your reward and
will bring you luck, Jenny.” The music began again, and the fairy fluttered away.
“Wake up, Child,” Jenny’s mother bent over her.
Before she opened her eyes, Jenny reached under the pillow. She was surprised when she felt
something there. When she saw the coin, she sat up smiling.
“Mother,” she cried, “did the fairy come or was I dreaming?”
Mother smiled and said, “You want to believe that she came, don’t you? So why don’t we just make
believe that she did?”
With that thought, Jenny just smiled.
“But I saw her, Mother. I just don’t know how. I wish I didn’t fall asleep,” she said winking at Mother.
“Oh, well, I still have baby teeth anyway!”
