HUTCHINSON -- Chloe Fitzhugh of Hays, child of David and Nanette Fitzhugh, attended the Camp KAOS Space 101 program June 17 to 21 at the Cosmosphere. Chloe will be entering seventh grade at Hays Middle School this fall.

Space 101 is a four-day, introductory astronaut training camp for students entering seventh and eighth grades emphasizing teamwork, leadership and problem solving. Developed by Cosmosphere staff, Camp KAOS science, technology, engineering, and match (STEM)-based programs are nationally recognized for their ability to motivate campers to seek careers in science and aerospace-related industries.

Participants construct and launch rockets, attend interactive briefings with Cosmosphere space science educators, tour the world-renowned Hall of Space Museum and train on Cosmosphere spaceflight simulators. The week culminates with a team-based mission in the Cosmosphere's Falcon III, the most realistic space shuttle simulator outside of NASA - where they pilot a low-Earth orbit mission - and the monitoring of another team's shuttle flight in Mission Control.

Cosmosphere spaceflight simulators challenge campers. The centrifuge is a rotating device that tests physical reactions to typical g-forces encountered during launch and reentry of spacecraft. The multi-axis trainer spins riders 360 degrees in multiple directions while simulating tumble maneuvers that could be encountered in spaceflight. The stress simulator incorporates external stimuli into a mission to replicate potential stressful situations a person might encounter during spaceflight. The Falcon III simulates launch, orbit, satellite deployment, reentry and landing of a space shuttle.
