While we there everyone participated in several learning and fun
activities in the museums and in the rocket park. In the IMAX Theater
we viewed “A Beautiful Planet”. Most of the students rode on the
Space Shot more than once and went in the G Force ride. We all went
on the thrilling airplane virtual reality ride that was inside the
museum at least once.
We all had jobs in the Mission program and launched and landed our rocket successfully. Jobs included Flight engineer (Grant), station commander (Max), pilot (Nate), commander (Caroline), astronauts – (Kyle and Ryan), Flight commander (Brayden).
The astronauts had to suit up and work on the outside of the rocket
tethered to it. Prior to our mission, we experienced different
simulations to be prepared for lack of gravity and spinning. A
mission patch was designed and described. On the last day, everyone
graduated on stage and received pins and certificates.
