Space Camp, California

There was a Problem with the Orbiter

by Billy W.
Mission Scientist
Age 9
April 01, 1997

I was a Mission Scientist. Ground Control had told us there was a problem with the Orbiter and we had to fix the problem by maneuvering it back into position.

While we were in the shuttle, we did experiments with crystals. My favorite thing about being on the mission was having the chance to land the space shuttle. I really felt like I had some real power. Steering the shuttle was a great accomplishment for me. I would recommend Space Camp to all of my friends.

[In the future,] I would like to fly the shuttle into space.

[I think Space Camp is] excellent. I liked the simulator, the MMU it turned 90 degrees and made me feel like there was no gravity.
