I spent 21 years working for the Space program. First 10 I was a member of the TV Ops team. We worked with the Astronauts to help them get the best framing for photos and video of the experiments on Space Lab. We, then, sat on console during the flights to direct the TV operations with Houston, gather the the payload photography and video tapes on landing and sort through them for the experimenters. The last 11 years I was a Data Management Controller for the Space Station. I sat on console recording payload data and video for the international users. Every once in a while I got to design mission patches. These represented the increments when there was a crew change.
