Thank you everyone for all your comments on my astronauts’ photo essay.

With all your help, I was able to achieve and surpass my goal of getting over 100 comments from 15 different countries and in 10 languages.  Actually, I ended up getting over 150 comments from 30 different countries and in 21 different languages. I was really excited about it!

I got an A+ in my science class for this project!

I learnt something special from this project – it was how connected everyone is on the Internet. When you need help, people from all over the world reach out and help you. That’s really amazing!

I really, really wanted to appreciate everyone’s help!
