Re: 2017

Surprise! Through a series of truly fantastic events, I was able to join my usual team at Space Camp this week. My attendance was a surprise to all but two people on the team. Despite a few hiccups here and there, it was a WONDERFUL week! The robotics department really outdid themselves, the docent ...

Re: Callsigns??

As others have said, call sign assignments at Space Camp aren't common, and usually just nicknames more than call signs. I must have stood out from the crowd enough to be granted a nickname that stuck through two camps, ten months apart. The sims counsellor that gave me the nickname was my team coun...

Re: Last mission for Atlantis

I know a certain someone on my adult team back in 2004 that would probably go all google eyed at the prospect of owning an old shuttle sim. Then again, he has probably crafted himself an exact replica by now... Someone will have to get an update from him next time he's at camp. PK - you know Sims, r...

Re: SpaceCamp (Finally) Coming to Blu-Ray!

Thanks for the review on the home page. The frame comparisons are very revealing; the blu-ray is higher quality than I expected it to be. It's also nice to see that the second version is oddly colour saturated for everyone else too. [s]I'll add a copy to my (American) Amazon order in October.[/s] (M...

Movie: Mission Control

Anyone here watched it yet? It is on Netflix and Apple iTunes, and probably some other video hosting/streaming sites as well. I am about half-way through and enjoying it immensely. I love seeing the faces of various engineers and MCC personnel and hearing their stories. I cannot wait to finish watch...

Re: AC Mach III First Timer

The camp packing list (I found it today) says that AC participants will be issued a BDU jacket to wear for the duration of camp. They also list two pairs of long pants or trousers (they recommend khakis). Now, I'm not sure I agree with the khakis statement since those are typically considered fairly...

Cool! Thanks for sharing. My two youth camps and one adult camp came up. Corporate/private group camps didn't.

Re: AC Mach III First Timer

Welcome to Hab1! One of the greatest lessons in life is: come as you are and be yourself; and be proud of it - and that applies to Space Camp and AC too! I haven't been to AC, not as a kid in a full programme anyway. (Now I wish I did, as they have since done away with adult AC camps, and I have sin...

Big USSRC Announcement

Anyone else tune in for the big announcement yesterday? I had to take an urgent phone call in the middle of it, so I didn't catch all of the details. Something was mentioned about a building that will connect the old museum building (with the TCF/MCC, UAT, etc.) with the Davidson Center. I would lov...

Re: Solar Eclipse

90% totality selfie! It was noticeably darker and cooler outside. The sky looked like you were wearing dark sunglasses. The pinhole camera worked just as ti should and was super fun to use. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20992913_10155354895061418_3049767067658217540_n.jpg?oh=b61016f8...

Re: 2018

If you did the week-long camp as a kid I think you could be disappointed with the abbreviated weekend Adult SA camp, as it won't include everything you may expect, since it's less than half the length. If you can make it work, I'd definitely recommend the week-long Adult ASA camp.

Re: Euro Space Center

Thanks, Feuerfresser! I look forward to reading all about it. Your two-day experience sounds interesting and makes me wonder why they gave up the Space Camp name if they continue to offer mini camps like this. (Much like KSC's ATX.)

Who plans on watching it - or part of it? We're in the ~90% zone, and whilst I am scheduled to be in the office that day, I plan on getting outside to see it - with my ever-so-simple pinhole camera. That's a double dose of science! Get the pinhole camera instructions here: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/e...

Oooh, Snowbirds! Too bad shipping is more than the cost of the shirt itself (at current bid). Some fun items already posted. I look forward to seeing the rest of the items.
