NASA Flight Directior
Date: 1993 - 1999
I am interested in being a 'Flight Director' for a NASA launch
when i grow up. What qualities are needed and are there any specifications
for this job? I have attended Space Academy and space Camp and was choosen
n both times to be a flight director. this is my dream!
Vicki, you will have to write to someone at NASA for a detailed list
of qualities. In the meantime you should study as much math, physics,
and other science as possible so you will understand all of the parts
of the launch task. If you study these things, you wil find lots of
great things to do. There are lots of fun thnigs you can do when
you have lots of tools and skills. Best of luck, Director.
