Local graduates from Space Camp

Kean Buss of Juneau recently attended and graduated from Space Academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

The weeklong educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math while training students and adults with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and problem-solving.

Buss was part of the Space Academy program, designed for those who have an interest in space exploration. Buss spent the week training with a team that flew a simulated space mission to Mars. The crew participated in experiments and completed an extra-vehicular activity, or spacewalk, and returned to Earth in time to graduate with honors.

The trainees slept in quarters designed to resemble the International Space Station and train in NASA-inspired simulators. Space Camp’s website is www.spacecamp.com.
