Re: LEGO STS-31

Ulysses was sold out by the time I tried to order it, anyway. My uncle couldn't get it either. They must have had very few available.

LEGO STS-31

LEGO recently released a larger model of the Discovery and Hubble Space Telescope. I was thrilled with the smaller version from 2003, part of the Discovery Kids series, and excited to see how this one compares. The new version has three times as many pieces and thus three times as large; it also has...

Re: Heartfelt Thanks and Congratulations for Vincent

Congratulations, Vincent! This page has been a huge part of my camp experience. I continue to read each update to the main page and check the forums on a regular basis (though not as regular with school this year).

Re: Rocket restorations

The Saturn I looks beautiful. They did a great job with the restoration. I really look forward to Pathfinder’s restoration. Back when the foam was original, not painted over, we would count the pennies stuck in the foam from people throwing them at the ET. Anyway, I have many good memories of the Sa...

Re: Save Space Camp Campaign

Boeing just donated $500,000! The current fundraising progress is at just over $1.1 million in three days. There is still a ways to go, but it is promising that their goal will be met in time. There have also been some humorous Space Camp movie references in the donations, like 'Hideo Takamini' and ...

Of any SC memorabilia, I feel this one needs to be earned, not bought, unless you are replacing one that was lost or damaged.

It looks like it has stitching holes to me. It's subtle, and on the front they would have been within the merrowed edge.

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: 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.
