Return To The Moon (A)
I was on the Medical Team. We had to do all this care stuff like check people’s eyes and people’s hearing. For example, when they would hear this little beeping sound they would have to click a button and we would have to see if they would respond to the sound. When you are in Mission Control, you have to tell (sometimes) them what team to do next so they could check everyone and make sure no one is sick or anything.
The most important information is the radiation sickness. You get it if it is really hot or really cold, even animals can get the sickness. What it does is it damages the body. The radiation sickness depends on how much radiation you've absorbed. How much you absorb depends on the strength of the radiated energy and the distance between you and the source of radiation.
The most difficult part of my job was that trying to take peoples' skin temperature since they move a lot. Also it was hard to try to think about the amount of people on the space shuttle and the amount of people getting sick. People hate getting sick.
If I can fly again I would try even harder then ever before. It was really hard to hear the Mission Control on the space shuttle with all the screaming and yelling to each other!!!
Buehler Challenger Center was so realistic it made you feel you were on the moon with all this technology that would really be on a space shuttle. It is really, really FUN.

It WAS hard to hear sometimes, wasn't it! I love the details about radiation you added. I never knew that!
