What would it take to work in NASA's Mission Control?
I've dreamed of working for NASA my entire life, and my two goals would to either work on the space shuttle or work in Mission Control. I want to know what sort of credentials and training would be required for such a job. I'll be training in the fall at an Aeronautics Institute to be an Aircraft Maintenance Technician, and I plan on furthering my education beyond that. Thanks! =)

Hi. The shuttle should not be your goal since they will be retired soon. I would look at a profound understanding of orbital mechanics or a software skill. Good luck!
