Space Nut - Historical File

I have been reading a story set in the future called Space Nuts Light Speed by Simon Cooke. Just like in this story, I have written a historical file about an object we use on earth, that someone could read about in the future.
Back in the ancient times people use to use safety matches to light candles or start fires under their control. To light a match you must hold the match in the middle but firmly. Put the match at the end of the striker. After that quickly slide the match on the striker. Do not slide too hard or fast because too much pressure will break the match. Sliding it too lightly will not light the match. These days people use their very own fire zapper. It's a gun used to do all the things a lighter or a match can do.

Hi Gloria
That's very interesting. We liked the colours in your picture and how they matched your story. Was it hard to do this kind of writing? We would love to hear more about your report.
