buy it and make it into their new home! Gary and Paula thought this was a great
idea too and bought it.

live? Come to the historic town of
Calico and find out!
In the late 19
century, people from all over the world travelled to California to
look for silver and gold. They built small mining towns everywhere in the area.
Calico was once a busy silver mining town with 500 silver mines. It had
tion of 1,200 people, and there were shops, hotels, cafes, a church, and a school.
When the silver rush ended at the start of the 20
century, everybody left Calico,
and today nobody lives there!
Please follow the town rules
The old mines in the area are very dangerous. You mustn’t go near them.

I live in London in a warehouse flat. I love it. It’s got much more character
than most modern flats. It’s on the top floor of a converted 19
century tea ware-
house, and it’s basically one large room with very high white walls and an enor-

one bedroom, which is on a balcony above the living area. Leading off this is
fantastic bathroom which is really luxurious. The

I live in Essex with my parents, my sister, and our two dogs in a windmill!
It’s really old, late 18

My house is

so all the rooms are much smaller
than a normal house. It’s fine for me though. I bought the boat after leaving uni-

house. Inside there’s a very cosy living room
and a well
equipped kitchen area. There are also two small bedrooms and a
shower’s room. In summer, if I want to sit outside, there is space for a table and
chairs on the open deck. The engine does a maximum of

Alpha is the size of three big houses. It has got a living area with

the astronauts can’t make phone calls but the space station has got a radio. The
astronauts use this to talk to their friends and families on Earth. Alpha has als
got scientific laboratories and fifty
Up to eight astronauts can live on Alpha. There is no gravity, of course, so life
isn’t the same as it is on Earth. The astronauts usually sleep eight hours every
night, not in beds but in
special sleeping bags fixed to the walls.
Also, the crew
members can’t have a shower in weightless conditions, so they wash with wet
cloths. Once a day, they ride an exercise bike for 30 minutes to keep fit.
They have meals in the kitchen and t
normal food, but they don’t use salt
and pepper because it flies awayA The astronauts don’t have make decisions
about what to eat because they choose their food months before the trip and a
computer tells them their menu for every meal.
In the station they wear T
shirts and trousers or shorts. But they don’t need
shoes because they don’t walk
they float! When they go outside the station,
they wear special space suit with enough oxygen for eight hours.

Astronauts on Alpha
are very busy. They check the scientific experiments in the
outside the station. And every day, one of the crew does the housework; it is very
important to keep the station cl
Alpha uses solar power and recycles air and water but it doesn’t produce food for
the astronauts. This year, the space shuttle has brought food from Earth three
times. There have been serious problems with the shuttle, though.

site also tells you about the shuttle’s position. Sometimes you can see Alpha and
the shuttle at the same time!
