I Wanted to Come to Space Camp

by Annalisa R.
Payload Specialist II
April 01, 1997

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 mission.

I've made lots of friends at Space Camp.
