Blake has walk sorted and is ready to fly to the moon

YEAR 1 student Blake Thomas reckons being on the moon would make his day.

Blake, who goes to Gladstone Central State School, is fascinated by the moon and has even practiced how you would walk up there.

"I think if you were on the moon you would float slowly," he said, demonstrating a slow-motion, Neil-Armstrong-type walk to The Observer.

"If I went to the moon I would wear a helmet," he said.

"If you didn't have a helmet you wouldn't be able to breathe."

Blake thinks the moon resembles cheese but it's actually white. He said he can't wait to do more school work on space.

"I have asked our teacher if we could learn about it in school," he said.

"I do know that the earth goes around the sun.

"But I want to know what happens to the rocket ship after it blasts off."

The six-year-old wants to be an astronaut when he grows up. "I think it would be really cool to be in a rocket ship," he said.
