      Hi Boomer10!

      Working with scientists can be fun but also challenging. Its fun because they are really enthusiastic about their science and you can learn alot from them. Its challenging because sometimes they have a science requirement which is very difficult to implement operationally and we have to think hard to come up with a good solution. We usually have been 10 and 20 experiments that we fly with each new crew so you can imagine what alot of work it is to make all these experiments work together. For sure you never get bored!
