Lea Thompson is returning to Huntsville!

Just got wind that Lea Thompson will be coming to the 2022 Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo in April!

This would be so cool to get down there, see her and visit the USSPROC!

Re: Name Badges

That's why I've posted it here and not on the Alumni Facebook group. :)

Gotta pass the word!

Re: Name Badges

So I know that a lot of alumni are looking for Space Camp specific nametags (myself being one of them). I contacted John P. on Etsy and gave him a design that I came up with based on the FAA Commercial Astronaut wings. Here is the prototype that he came up with. I think he nailed it!

Re: It's a shame Space Camp couldn't have gotten and used this...

Yeah, that gimbaled simulator is long gone. If I were a betting man, I would say that it was tucked away in the conservation area along with the MOLAB and some of the other stuff that used to be on display but has since been taken off property.

Re: It's a shame Space Camp couldn't have gotten and used this...

Which orbiter sim is that? The one that they have branded as Endeavour is in the Astrotrek building and is being used for junior camps. They have it connected to a salvaged station module that they got from Marshall. A teammate and I checked it out while we were on break one day. It has the full fli...

Re: Callsigns??

I was extremely lucky in that I got a callsign my first time at camp! I was at the recent Adult Advanced Academy and we were running our EDM to Mars. I was the commander of the landing mission (as opposed to the group in the station orbiting Phobos). Our SOCOM (CAPCOM for the Mars missions) was star...

Re: Adult Advanced Space Academy

So, I talked to a couple of the trainers as to why they don't release the schedules either prior to camp or during camp. They said it's because they want to be able to maintain the flexibility of the schedule. If they release the schedule, then people are expecting modules at a certain time. This wa...

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

Nice! The first time I went on it, it was with my oldest kid. The second time, years later, I flew solo. The last moment, when the payload bay doors open and you're suspended by your straps..breathtaking!

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

So cool you got a callsign. Most don't their first time. Is that you in the Endeavour hat? If so, can you post a good shot of the patches on your jacket? The patches for the most part are the standard ones that come with the jacket. I added two. The first being a nametag that I had made from nameta...

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

Actually, that's Orion 1. Orion 2 has been dedicated to the lunar mission for the kids camps, which is too bad, because it has the higher fidelity simulator. Though, Orion 1 is still a good ship and Altair was fun as well!

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

Yeah, we had such a great group too! We only had one member who was...less than a team player. Seems all he wanted to do was slip out of camp and get stoned all day. No training, no sims. Whatever..more fun for the rest of us! As for my missions, I got nearly all of the positions I wanted! On Alpha ...

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

So, I got back last night. There is so much to unpack emotionally from week. It was everything that I was hoping it would be and more. 39 years of waiting paid off and then some! I will have many more thoughts and will post a complete wrap up of my trip. Aside from all of the wonderful adventure of ...

Re: Anyone going to the Adult Advanced Academy starting on 10/31?

Will do! Right now, I'm excited, nervous, a little stressed about the MAT (watched my oldest pass out on one once at Wisconsin Dells) and the UAT, but mostly just really pumped to get down there!

I'm going to be going to my first expedition next week and was wondering if anyone from the forums was going to be attending? It would be great to meet some of you there!

Re: Flight Suits - How well do they fit?

So I went ahead and purchased a Flight Suit from the Museum store in one size up and it is a tight fit! I may have to go another size up unless I can drop another ten pounds by the start of the session.

Re: Name Badges

My Callsign doesn't have to do with camp. I'm assuming I'll get an "official" one once I get there. Mine started out from a Star Trek group that I belong to. You move up through the ranks and I eventually got to the rank of admiral. They found out about it at my job and started addressing ...
