Becky Anderson is a woman in Outer Space.
In the future she makes sure she copes outside Earth.

Space is a sense of wonder.

I walked outside the space ship, ELR-4323.

I breathed in the strange air.

There is a look of the World that's different from the past.

I looked at the pilots.

"Are we on Earth, yet?".

"Yes".

"Good. I need to know about the future".

"It's like a heavenly dream".

I smiled, and focused on the swirling dust particules in the atmosphere.

I breathed inward, and tapped on the grey door with my right hand.

There was a small swishing sound, and it opened up into the spaceship's cavernous rooms. I took off my helmet, and saw the computer's voice say:

"WELCOME BACK, CAPTAIN!".

"THANK YOU. YOU CAN TRAVEL BEYOND THE STARS". 

I sat on the silvery seat, and watched the glass windows, eager to experience the shifting of the planets, as the silence was the only sound I heard for a long time.
