"Okay, let's go." said Alex's mom.
An Alex only life an hour away from the Kennedy Space Center and Cody only lives 45 minutes from the Space Center. Alex and her family would drive there every time there was a launch. She had seen Atlantis, Columbia and Discovery get launched into orbit at the Kennedy Space Center because they live so close. She had only missed one launch and that was Challenger. Christa Mcauliffe was her favorite Astonaut but tragically died in the Challenger accident.
Alex missed the launch because she had the mild case of the chicken pox but Alex was glad that she missed the death of her favorite Astronaut.
After picking up Cody they had arrived at the Kennedy Space Center, they sighned in, got their jumpsuits, waved goodbye, unpacked in their dorms and got in their groups. Alex's mom made a request that Cody and Alex would be in the same group. They were both in the blue group. after being showed around by their counsellor Jamie they went back to their dorms to sleep for the night with everyone else.
