Re: Orbiter mockup at the old Florida STS departs...

I figured as much. I seem to recall seeing and going inside both on one visit, though I only have photos from inside the KSCVC one.

Re: Orbiter mockup at the old Florida STS departs...

I have some photos taken inside the orbiter mock-up that used to be at the KSC visitor complex itself, where Atlantis currently is. Is this the same mock-up, just relocated to the camp and HOF property? Or were there two different mock-ups at KSC? The photos I have are from film, taken in the 1990s....

Re: Hidden Figures

I didn’t get to the theaters to see it, so I’ll nab it on Netflix when they eventually have it. Other than here and the CollectSpace forum, I haven’t read much about it. I don’t think a single co-worker or local friend of mine saw it as I don’t recall overhearing anyone discussing the film. I'm sur...

Re: Hidden Figures

We don't have that offer here (Canada), though it sounds excellent. Aside: does anyone actually use UltraViolet? UV digital copies don't work (easily) on any of my devices (all Apple). I am going I pick up my copy this afternoon! I found the 4K blu ray + regular blu ray + DVD + HD digital copy for $...

Re: Additional Item Purchases When Registering For Camp

You can usually purchase the clothing package at camp as well, once you know if they have everything in your size and you know you like the items in the package. (At least this was the case in 2015.) I also echo purchasing your flight suit before camp or your first day to wear on some of your missio...

Re: The Mars Generation Movie

But as for uploading a copy for you, I simply don't have the technical knowledge/ability to do something like that. In other words, I could land a shuttle, but wouldn't be able to design one! Whereas I have the skills to design one but God help the crew if I were ever relied on to land it. Haha. Th...

Re: 1996 Groups vs Now?

Wasn't Astrotrek mostly a day programme and Pathfinder an overnight one? I remember reading about each somewhere but I just read through the program guides from 1997-1999 and neither programme is mentioned. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have museum sleepovers and aren't Space Camp alumni. There are wee...

The Mars Generation Movie

Anyone else excited to see this? It's a Netflix documentary about Space Camp and spaceflight.

Unfortunately, I don't live in America, nor do I have Netflix (and even if I did, I doubt this would be available in Canada). Anyone know how I could watch this? It comes out on 05 May.

Re: Questions about hab1

The bubble windows on the end of Hab 1 have been replaced with flat ones. Those rooms belong to camp counsellors. As for the lift, you'll probably have to call camp and ask about that. I imagine it would have been repaired by now -- over six months later. Also, have a super fun time at camp! We'd lo...

Re: STA news

Looking good! I hope they coat the windows and inside with UV-resistant coatings so they don't deteriorate in the blazing Alabama summer sun.

How is the amphitheatre area shaping up? They had the major steps carved into the ground when I was there last (2015) but I haven't seen anything since.

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

Wow! That is about all I can say about our visit to Pima and the Boneyard. The day was incredible. I just wish we could have spent more time there and listened to more stories from the docents. The Boneyard tour was narrated and slow enough to talk about the various planes and the different activiti...

I have seen Dr. Seddon in photos from a few USSRC events, but rarely as a featured guest or speaker.

Re: 2017

But then who would look after their awesome Australian Shepherds if both of them were at camp for a week? I say they bring Hoot and Dr. Seddon, plus their pups. Aussies are super smart; they could probably flick switches or hold the less popular MOCR positions. 8O On a more serious note, a female as...

Read the book: it is great! Watch the movie: it is beautiful, inspiring, strong, powerful, and incredible. All of you should watch it. The cinema we went to gave it a standing ovation. There aren't many other words to say, just watch it and admire these women and the other administrators that were p...

Re: 2017

Happy New Year's weekend everyone! Who here is planning on attending camp in 2017?

We have other plans this year and hope to return to camp soon. In the meantime, I look forward to all of your stories and photos.

Check in with your session dates and type of camp.
