Being a space explorer is great! You get to fly rocket ships, visit new planets and have a load of fab adventures. You need to be in good shape of course, so doctors and nurses keep a careful eye on you. They are always asking questions and doing tests to make sure you stay fit and well.

If you are shorter than other children of your age, your doctors and nurses may be asking questions and doing tests too, like the ones at the space academy. You may also have treatment to help you grow taller.

Having tests and getting treatment can be confusing at first. But it's exciting too, because there's a whole new world of stuff to explore on your journey of discovery. We are going to explore that world together, so jump on board and let's get going!
