Astronaut Candidate Interviews - Shannon Walker
They were, my whole family was very excited when I was selected because they know I've been trying for this job for a very long time. And so, uh, mostly when I called up my family to tell them, I got a lot of screams in the phone of excitement and squeals in the background from the kids. My, most of my nieces and nephews are, are fairly young; so, they, uh, they've been studying space in school and studying about astronauts. So, they're just, cannot believe that their Aunt Shannon is, is going to be an astronaut.
