Travel in Space   

1     A long time ago, it was not easy to travel around. Then we built ships. We made horses pull carriages. We invented cars. We invented bicycles. We invented motorcycles. We invented trains. We invented subways. We made all these things, so traveling became easier.

3     But we still did not stop there. We looked up in the sky and wanted to visit other planets. We wanted to know what the moon was like. We wanted to know what Mars was like.
