Would you like to travel in space?
Tell me why or why not.

Yes, I'd love to.
I remember that when I was an elementary schoolboy, I took a look at the ring of Saturn
through my friend's astronomical telescope and I got really excited.
Since then, space has been mysterious and fascinating to me.
If possible, I'd like to look at the earth from outer space at least once before I die.
