    Dear Miss May,
    1. The story was about that they were trying to make a new suit to go to space. It had to be bone prective and the calcium has to get out of there bones. Also how they were working in a new suit to go to space and it now finally done.
    2. Some disadvantages of wearing these space suits is that it dosnt cover there face or there neck really, it is very thin. Also it is to pretty to go to space you need something thicker and something very head pretective or your bones will fell like your and 90 year old man.
    3. The biosuit is the older one because it is much more uncofterball, than the other suit but that is much more pretective.
    4. The body wait changes in space because there is know gravity in space and also it is lighter because there is no gravity.
    5. On a mission to Mars it takes about 2 and a half hours to get there when you come back you will get the hip of a 90 year old man.
    6. Because it makes you feel like you have 90 year old man.
    7. The suit helps prevent it pecs use it is air tight so know air can get out of your body.
    8. The fake spaceship is called Jeffrey I think.
    9. I have know idea what to draw I don’t really get what to draw.
    10. I understand more that you have to get all of the calcium out of your bones like I didn’t know that.

    2. Some disadvantages are spwith the space suit they are using now are very uncomfortable.
    3. The biosuit is a much comfier space suit.
    4. Gravity?

    Dear Miss May,
    1.Theres a new type of space suit It supplies oxygen and protects space travellers from radiation and poisonous gases. But astronauts on very long missions, like to Mars, also need protection from the effects of weightlessness which can damage their bones. So a new type of spacesuit’s was invented.
    2.The disavantige is that when you land outside in space the air in your body gets sucked out and you go num and they are really big.
    3.The biosuit is diffrent because insted of havinv all of the air suck in around you it is tight and elastic.
    4.In space your body changes becase you dont have a lot of calcuim so it makes you look really old.
    5.On the way to mars you come bake with the bones the size of a 90 year old.
    6.The osteoporsis affects your bones by making them weak and easyer to brake.
    7.The suit help prevent osteoporsis by creating the pull of gravity.
    8.They called the fake space ship the vomit comet.
    10.I kind of find it a bit easyer learning about how the space suits work.

    To Miss May,
    1. My short summary is that they are making a new space suit that is lighter and easier to move around in.
    2. The disadvantages are that its very uncomfortable and hard to move in
    3. The biosuit is different because it is very tight elastic and the older ones were pumped with air.
    4. All the air in your body gets sucked out and then your blood goes to you’re head.
    5. On a mission to Mars that takes about two and a half years, you would come back with the hip bones of a 90 year old.
    6. Osteoporosis affect bones by geting thinner and weaker.
    7. Gives us oxygen and stops us from geting poisoners
    8. The pretend spaceship shown in the BtN story is called the vomit comet.

    Dear Miss May,
    1. A person named Dr. James Waldie is wanting to make space suits better than the old ones which are stiffer. There is a lot of things to make the suit prevent.
    2. One of the disadvantages is that the suit is really tight and hard to get in.
    3. The biosuit is better than the old ones because the old ones pressure to too big to move around.
    4. When weightless in space, without the pressure from space your bones loose calcium.
    5. On a mission to Mars that takes about two and a half years, you would come back with the hip bones of a ninety year old.
    6. Osteoporosis effects inside the bones wich makes them get thinner and weaker.
    7. The suit is made to recreate the pull of gravity to stop osteoporosis.
    8. The pretend ship is called Vomit Comit.
    10. I learned what will happen if you were out in space with no space suit, not exploding.

    Dear Miss May,
    I really enjoyed watching this BTN video, I learnt a lot and here are my answers.
    1. A summary of this video would be that space suits help you survive in space by providing a lot of survival things inside. They provide pressure and oxygen. If you didn’t have a space suit on in space your oxygen would all come out your sliver would come off your toung and in 10-15 seconds your blood will rush to your brain and you would become unconscious.
    2. Some of the disadvantages of space suits at the moment are that the space suits can be so tight but that is all pressure and that is so your hips don’t start to stick out.
    3. The biosuit is different to the other ones because it is made up of super tight elastic to help with your hips and you don’t need to use as much pressure.
    4. The body may change because when you are in space you don’t have much calcium so your hips start to stick out, also you can grow taller.
    5. On a mission to Mars it will take about two and a half years that way when you come back you will have the hips of a 90 year old.
    6. It affects bones by making them thinner week so that they can break easily.
    7. The suit helps prevent it because it is so tight and it has a lot of pressure on them.
    8. The pretend space ship in the video is called the Vomet Commet.
    9. In book.
    10. I understand more about the pressure in the space suits and how it helps you in space.

    Dear Miss May,
    That was interesting!
    1. A summary of the post would be this: The space suits that the astronauts wear are quite bad for you because they have no gravity so when you go to space the suits hold you to the ground. When you come out of space you will feel like a 90 year old because your suit and the gravity of the suits weaken your bones.
    2. The disadvantages are that they weaken your bones.
    3. The bio suits are better because you can move and it doesn’t stop you from moving.
    4. The Changes are that you grow taller and your hips pop out.
    5. On a mission to Mars it will take about to and a half years so when you come back you will have the hips of a 90 year old.
    6. It affects the bones by making them thinner and weaker so they can break easily.
    7. The suit helps provent it because it is so tight and there is a lot of pressure.
    8. The pretend space ship in the video is called the Vommet Commet.
    9. In book.
    10. I under stand more about the pressure and about how you couldn’t survive in space without a space suit.

    Dear Miss May,
    1. The BTN video was about space suits evolving apparently the old space suits were annoying when they stiffened up.
    2. There body parts stiffen up and then it’s hard to move.
    3.you can move your body parts around and it works well in space, when the other one could brake body parts.
    4.?
    5. If you went to Mars with the suits we use now you will come with the hip bones of a 90 year old.
    6. I’m not sure but I think they strength them up?
    7.?

    To miss may
    Here are my awnsers
    This ban video was about space suits and designing better ones.
    The disadvantage of wearing a space suits is that is is verry hard to move and will give your bones damage.
    The bio suit is diffrent because it is slimmer and more conferteble
    When there is no gravity in space your bones loose calcium.
    If you go to Mars with a normal space suit you would come back with the hips of a 90 year old.
    Osteoporosis affects the bones because they grow weaker.
    The suits puts presure and stops you bones feeling weird.
    The pretend space ship is called the vomit comet.

    Dear Miss May,
    1. To go on long trips in space your bones lose calcium and become weak, people are making a new space suit to stop that happening.
    2. The suit is big a bulky and it gets very stiff.
    3. The bio suit make the presser if you were on earth and it stops your bone becoming weak.
    4. Your bones lose calcium and become weak.
    5. You would have a hip bone of a 90 year old.
    6. Osteoporosis makes the bones weaker and thinner so they break easier.
    7. The suit make the presser the stops the calcium loss.
    8. It’s called the Vomit Comet.
    9. In my book.
    10. I understand that we are advancing in technology.

    3. The bio suit is not stiff and it’s made out of tight rubber.
    4. Your bones loose calcium and you grow a tiny bit.
    5. You would come back form a trip to Mars with the hip bones of a ninety year old.
    6. Bones get thinner and weaker with osteoporosis.

    Dear Miss May,
    1:You can’t live in space without a giant space suit on and that is very uncomfortable. That is why they are trying to make comfortable suits.
    2: the disadvantages that are occurring are that they are very hard to move in.
    3: the bio suit is very tight and is made of elastic
    4: it doesn’t get enough calcium so the bone becomes like ninety year olds bones.
    5: ninety year old.

    Dear Miss May,
    I found this video really interesting because I didn’t know that astronauts had to wear a specific spacesuit when they flew up to space.
    1. This video was about the different technology scientists have to use when they send people up to space so they have to wear a special suit that provides them with air and calcium. They need calcium for their bones.
    2. Some of the disadvantages of the spacesuits we have today are that they have lots of pressure in them and they are not good for trips to further away places as it wouldn’t help your bones.
    3. The Biosuit is different to the other spacesuits because it provides the astronaut with calcium for their bones and it is better for longer distances.
    4. The body changes in the weightlessness of space because it damages your bones beucase of not enough calcium.
    5. On a mission to Mars that takes about two and a half years, you would come back with the hips of a 90 year old.
    6. Osteoporosis affects bones because they get weaker and thinner inside and eventually they break.
    7. The Biosuit helps prevent osteoporosis by recreating the pull of gravity.
    8. The pretend spaceship was called the Vomit Comet.
    9.
    10. I understand that they have to make really good spacesuits to prevent death up in space.

    Dear Miss May,
    This video was about creating new space suits that are comfy, and they have strong elastic. They said that the other bulky space suits are really annoying and uncomfortable because a lot of pressure gets to them and you can hardly move your body.
    Some disadvantages of the old space suit are that lots of pressure gets into them, so it gets stiff and uncomfortable.
    Biosuits are different to the older suits because they have strong elastic, but it is so tight to put on that it is tighter that putting on a pair of jeans.
    Your body changes in the weightless in space because without pressure, your bones lose calcium.
    On a mission to Mars, that takes about two and a half years, you would come back with the hip bones of a 90 year old.
    Osteoporosis effects bones by getting weaker and thinner insides so that they break easily.
    The new suit helps by recreating the pull of gravity to stop that happening.
    The pretend spaceship shown in the BTN story is called the Vomit Comet.
    10. I know now that they are trying to creat a new space suit and I didn’t know that the old ones were really uncomfortable to wear.
