'3, 2, 1... lift-off!' Max groaned as the incredible force of his spaceship's rocket engine propelled him and his crew mates, Alex and Jake, towards the stars. Mars here we come! Max thought. Soon, it was time to undo their safety straps and perform their tasks. 'Oh no!' exclaimed Alex, as Jake, floating past, accidentally bashed into the rocket's navigation system. Warning lights flashed and alarms sounded.
Hours later, still wrestling with the controls, Max finally landed the spaceship safely on Mars. 'Wait, this isn't Mars!' yelled Alex.
'I know,' said Max, 'space is scary. This is my garden!'
