Tekst 1.

Have you ever dreamt of travelling to space and spending a night on a space station? If you have, book yourself into the Space Suite of the Grand Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland. The room comes with a “zero-gravity bed” that seems to float above the floor and a two-screen video installation visualizing space from Earth’s orbit. Inside you’ll also find books and movies about space travel and pictures of galaxies. The designer’s task wasn’t to create a comfortable bedroom but rather an environment which would be as close as possible to living on a space station. The experience will cost you $2,000 per night but it’s definitely worth it!

This year, for the first time ever, the International Astronomical Union will let the public decide on the names of ten distant planets that have been discovered recently. Anybody can write an email with their suggestions and explain why they’ve decided on these particular names. First, the jury will pick 50 names for each planet. Then, these names will be presented on a website and everybody who wants to vote will be able to choose their favourites. Prizes will be given to the people who suggested the winning names. Interested? Visit the website.

2. Which is the best title for this text?
Tekst 3.

Gladia raised her left hand and made a gesture. Her house was at once illuminated. In the soft light she noticed the shadowy figures of several robots, but she was not bothered by them. In any house, there were always robots available for humans, both for security and for service. Gladia took a last look at the sky, where the light of the stars was becoming weaker. Would it make her feel better if she could see the sun of the world she had run away from? She might simply choose any star, tell herself it was Solaria’s sun, and look at it.
