Floating in space, minding your own business, when an astronaut glides past...
It looks like a chunk of planet has broken free, with plants growing out of the top and lots of mysterious pipes sticking out underneath. What is going on?
Write the story of the floating space garden.
Where is it from?
Where is it going?
Who is the astronaut?
Hint: Zoom in on the picture to see all the great details on the underside of the planet.

Where the robot found the balloon
How he feels about it
What might happen next
What could go wrong
For an extra challenge, pretend you are the robot while you are writing the story.
