Re: Euro Space Center

Thank you for the updates. What does the shuttle name AMICITIA translate to in English? I am happy to hear they still have space shuttle simulators and missions. The futuristic missions at US Space Camp are good, but require more imagination since the real spacecraft are still development themselves...

Saturn 1 For Sale!

https://ascienceenthusiast.com/nasa-giving-away-apollo-era-saturn-rocket-anyone-wants/ Wait, what?!?! The link in the article, to obtain NASA artefacts, doesn't list the Saturn 1, so it may have been a hoax or already sold, but still! I'm sure my parents' property is big enough. It's significantly c...

Re: 2019?

What museum is that, I need to put it on my list of things to do in Seattle. It's at the Museum of Flight. We spent a full day there and it wasn't enough. I would recommend the Boeing tour as well. I have not had the pleasure of doing it yet, but everyone I know who has done it won't stop talking a...

Re: Space Camp For Educators

I can only assume it's for formal educators only, but if you want to know for sure - give them a call and ask to speak with Heather on extension 5639. She's in charge of the educator programmes. It's possible they accept non-formal educators as well. Members of the general public with no teaching ex...

Re: 2019?

I always wish the docent tour was longer, around 2 or 3 hours... I could listen to them all day long. That sounds like such a short weekend, but packed with activities for new campers. The last morning seems a bit anticlimactic. I'm sure many repeat campers would enjoy it, too, but some may find it ...

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...

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 ...

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, ...

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...
