On July 19, 1985, she was appointed as backup payload specialist to Christa McAuliffe, whose task was to give 15-minute classes to schoolchildren while aboard the Challenger space shuttle about life and the organization of scientific work on the space shuttle and space exploration, as well as to shoot educational video clips.
