Only a shooting star.

Come on, Andie.

Everybody's watching on TV.

You can't see it

if you don't come in.

Can too see it.

Just another wisher.

He winked at me!

John Glenn winked at me!

I'm going up.


I'm going up.

We are at T minus 19 days

and counting

toward main engine test

of Atlantis on July 23rd...

- Thanks.

- Hi, darling.

- I'm not going up.

- Yeah, I heard.

I can't believe it.

They chose Eddie Miller

instead of me.

He gets airsick in cars.

That's why I married you

instead of Eddie Miller.

I thought for sure I was

getting up there this time.

You'll get your chance next time.

Primary objective of the test...

You're damn right I will.

You're not gonna be the only one

in this family to walk on the moon.

Think of the bright side.

You get to spend your summer

with me at Space Camp.

Oh, no.

You promised.


I get to play "Let's pretend I'm

an astronaut" with a bunch of kids.

These aren't just kids, you know.

These are clean-cut

all-American kids.

Make me proud.

I believe this is

one of your kids now.

Yep, I'd recognize him anywhere--

clean-cut, well motivated...


Great boosters!

- Will you turn that down?

- What?

Would you mind turning that down?

Okay, okay, no sweat.

You want Space Camp?

No. My father

wants Space Camp,

but I want my head examined.

- It was worth it for the car.

- Let's hope so.


Would you get your ass

out of my parking spot?

Yeah, right.

Sorry about that.

Space Age technology, huh?

Have a good summer.

Make sure you check

that left mag, Dad. It's sticking.


Welcome aboard, campers.

I'm Zach Bergstrom,

director of Space Camp.

We're going to train you

just like NASA trains astronauts.

I didn't say "real astronauts"

because at Space Camp,

you are real astronauts.

Robert Pickett, Purple Team.

Lonnie Fowler, Red Team.

- Kathryn Fairly.

- Kathryn Fairly.

Blue Team.

- Hideo Takamini.

- Hideo Takamini.

Blue Team. Gardener...

Kevin Donaldson, Yellow Team.

Dennis Anderson,

you're with the Green Team.

Susan Lange, on the Green Team.

Ricky Powell,

you're on the Purple Team.

- David Joe, White Team.

- Chris Chu, White Team.

Okay, everybody, let's all

gather in the Rocket Park

where you'll meet

the other members of your team.

Leave your bags here.

You can pick them up later.

Come on, everybody,

let's move it.

Orientation at 1300 hours.

Four years ago

Space Camp was created

not only to provide you with

hands-on access to space hardware,

but also to teach you how

to work together as a team.

Hi, I'm Andie Bergstrom.

You're an astronaut!

The first female pilot!

Yeah. How did you know that?

I've read all about you in

the "Young Astronauts" program.

Let's see, you were the backup pilot

for the first Discovery flight,

but Coats got it instead.

Yeah. I remember.

What are you doing here?


- And what is your name?

- Rudy Tyler, ma'am.

Spit it out, Rudy.

Rudy Tyler, ma'am!

I meant the gum, Rudy.

You look like a guy with...

...a lot of energy.

I'm making you

Mission Specialist #1,

Equipment Function and Operation.

Wow. Thanks, ma'am.

My father told me when you come

to Space Camp, they give you--

We'll talk about it later, okay?

By the way, this is Space Camp

and not the Marine Corps.

- Yes, ma'am.

- You can call me Andie.

Hi, Andie. I'm Tish.

Tish Ambros.

Right there.

Yeah. So what brings you

to Space Camp, Tish?

Well, I did this audit at JPL

in radio astronomy.

It was unbelievable!

I mean, can you imagine

an extraterrestrial disc jockey?

Like, listening
