Re: 2019?

Sounds like you need to send your son to camp the week of 13-20 July and add a few days on either end to attend the special events.

Re: 'Space Shuttle Mission' simulator 2007

You can download software that can simulate an older operating system. I don't know what it is called, but I know it's a work-around. In Windows, you used to be able to 'open as...' (or something similar) and select an older operating system version as well. I used to do that when older programme wo...

Re: IMAX :-(

Wow, this looks like a wonderful upgrade. Well done, USSRC. Though, I will admit I enjoyed watching the three Space Camp films over and over in the corridor when I had down time. But, Hubble and Chandra have a special place in my heart, too.

Re: Informal space science education thread

BURAN prototype OK-GLI (their version of the Enterprise, used for landing tests, but it had jet engines so it could take off on its own and go around in landing tests) exists today in Germany, at Technik Museum Speyer. My friends mentioned last week that they wanted to see this on their next trip t...

Re: "First Man" movie, who's going to see it the opening weekend?

We watched 'First Man' tonight and I admit I am underwhelmed. The handheld videography was extremely distracting and irritating for me, as was the imbalance of the audio, and I think it really took away from the film. Also, the trailers added far more action and intensity than there was in actuality...

Re: 2018

So true! When we were there in October 2017 Hab1 was FULL!! As in, every single room was occupied, including some not ordinarily used. Granted, it was with assorted families, so the rooms were not at capacity due to gender restrictions, but still - even in the off season they are getting very large ...

Re: 2018

Ugh, my reply was deleted again (twice). The short version: There used to be alumni camps for youth and adults, much like the elite programme. They built on skills, had longer and more detailed missions, and some unique lectures. They made a great template for more complex corporate or adult camps, ...

My parents sent me off to another country! It took much pleading for them to let me attend. I'm forever grateful they put trust in me to fly there alone.

I think Hotdog summarised it well. As a former Space Camp Scholarship recipient, I applaud you for undertaking the task. Even if you don't get the scholarship, the process of applying is very educational and rewarding in itself. I hope your efforts will result in a full or partial scholarship to att...

I'm happy to hear Spence was on your team. By the photos, I though Steve was on the team as well, but happy he was there as a guest. Wow, the super short missions sound sad. There used to be a 6-hour shuttle mission for ASA, but that was before Mars missions came into effect; they've since reduced t...

Quoting the USSRC Facebook feed: Seeing First Man in the theater this weekend? Listen closely. The sounds of switches and clicks in the Apollo Command Module were recorded on-location at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Below is a photo of Neil Armstorng, Buzz Aldrin, and M...

Re: IMAX :-(

Oh, some of my fondest camp memories and silly inside jokes happened in that theatre. OREOs and IMAX will make me giggle for years to come. As it will be sad to see IMAX depart (bye bye Canadian technology), I think a planetarium will be a great addition, as I always wondered why there wasn't one in...

Re: "First Man" movie, who's going to see it the opening weekend?

I am excited to see it, but will wait for Blu-ray. The previews make it look pretty intense and I am prone to sensory overload, so watching it in cinema might be too much.

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

Are the Hab room doors steel or something else? The older style doors in Hab1 are plastic. The one on our room last year was wood. I'm not sure what material the newest set of doors are made of, since they renovated the doors after we were there last. Might be a good question for Vincent, Benji, St...
