NASA astronaut: Children should dream for stars
BARRINGTON – NASA's Shannon Walker asserts the retirement of the space shuttles shouldn't cause children to give up their dreams of becoming astronauts.
Walker on Wednesday told students at St. Anne School in Barrington that in 2010 she flew to the International Space Station on a Russian rocket. She had to learn the Russian language first before she could train on the Russian equipment.
Walker said despite the fact her liftoff and return occurred in Kazakhstan, the rocket crew consisted of two Americans and a Russian cosmonaut.
