12 Day ASA

So I just got the email on 12 day ASA this week. I'm thinking of going, but I have a few questions. Is it as fast paced as 6 day? I remember it being very fast paced, and a bit tiring, so I'm not sure if I could handle 12 days at that pace. What are some things that 12 day gets to do that 6 day does...

Akeem Davis and Heather Anders were GREAT counselors. I had soooo much fun with them!!! And Revan, one of my teammates had Baywatch when he came to camp last year and he spent EVERY meal time bothering him, going "HI BAYWATCH!!" and waving like a maniac. It was really funny. :) AKEEM! He ...

It was bouncy when I would start and stop, but not unbearable.

The G load isn't very high. People pass out when they pull 8 Gs, the centrifuge only will give 3.2 Gs

I prefer Space Shot to G-Force, and the Centrifuge at AC above both options. (And the MAT above all...) I never did the centrifuge. How is it different than g--force? It's less like an amusement park ride and more like what real pilots use for training. It only holds two people at a time and has ac...

Thanks for the photos. It's interesting to see how things have changed over the years. It has changed A LOT. Most of the space stuff has been moved out to the new Davidson Center, while the stuff from the Shuttle exhibit is in the area around the UAT. The main area of the museum is now traveling ex...

I just had Tyler Brown and Rachel Acuna for ASA, they were probably the best counselors I've had there. I had Rachel too as my night counselor and Jameel Lewis for daytime they were hand down the best "team trainers" ever. Did Rachel try telling you guys she was 42?lol Lol, yeah. Did she ...

My team was split on Mexican Wednesday. Most of us hated it (partly because half the team was Australian) and a few of us loved it.

For the 6 hour mission..... Doesn't it get boring doing the same things for 6 hours? Not really. It's in 2 hour blocks. For the first block, we had launch. The CDR and PLT did their thing after we were in orbit (probably solving anomalies, I was on an EVA most of that block), while the station crew...

If you have to go crazy for a medical anomaly on the EDM, prepared to be wrapped in duct tape. Also, the Canadarm on Enterprise is AWESOME! If you are in MOCR, expect total chaos.

What?

If you mean how we got positions on the EDM, we voted on who gets what.

My ASA Trip

I got home from ASA today, and it was AWESOME! I only died twice on the EDM :lol: My team and counselors were great. About half of my team were a school group from Brisbane, Australia. And what you guys said about EDM medical anomalies, you are right, it does get crazy. I really love the new Davidso...
