Space Camp, California
I Wanted to Come to Space Camp

Payload Specialist II

I wanted to come to Space Camp because I like space
and it sounded like fun. When I grow up I want to be a lawyer but I used
to want to be a veterinarian.
I was the Payload Specialist II on my space shuttle
mission. I had to switch all the switches and run the experiment. I did
an experiment on crystal growth. I had trouble with the microscope. Training
for the mission was fun. The mission was a lot harder than I thought.
It was hard to keep up with the script. We had to work together.
Another thing I've done at Space Camp was try the
simulators. My favorite was moonwalking. It's like walking in the air
and you go bouncing up and down.
The next thing we are going to do is train for another
I've made lots of friends at Space Camp.
