Space Station Mission
This activity is the highlight of the program!
- During our simulated Space Station Mission, campers are assigned special positions (such as Payload Specialist, Mission Scientist, or Flight Engineer).
- Parent and child can participate in the shuttle mission side-by-side as Commander and Pilot, or perhaps as Flight Director and Capsule Communicator
- Each crew member is integral to the success of the mission. If a team member neglects a vital duty or assignment, it may have an adverse effect on the outcome of the flight
