Not many people know this, but The Beanotown Space Academy opened its doors to a select number of new recruits this summer and there's one spot left in their September class! After beating Gnasher in a game of rock-paper-scissors, Phil E.S. has got his paws on the last entry form. He's always wanted to go into space, ever since he was a tiny pup. So, would you be able to help him through this tough personality quiz that every astronaut must take?

Halfway though taking this questionnaire, Phil E.S. Dogg decided that he'd prefer to keep all four paws on planet Earth for now and enjoy some science fiction movies instead!

Result: Maybe next year

The Beanotown Space Academy says: MAYBE NEXT YEAR!

While The Beanotown Space Academy thought Phil did well, they'd like him to learn more about the different planets and how to float around correctly before joining the class!

Result: You're in

The Beanotown Space Academy says: YOU'RE IN!

Thanks to your help, the Beanotown Space Academy would like Phil to enrol this September, so he's got plenty of time to enjoy the summer before beginning an adventure that will be out of this world! Literally – he's going to space soon!

Result: Blast off

The Beanotown Space Academy says: BLAST OFF!

The Beanotown Space Academy were so impressed with Phil's answers that they'd like him to go on their next mission which takes place this week! Don't worry, he'll be back in time for next week's adventure! Could you help him to decide what to pack?
