Space Camp, California
There was a Problem with the Orbiter
by Billy W.

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
[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.
