Re: IMAX :-(

I went by and paid my last respects on Friday. Lots of memories in that theater! :cry: I snapped these images for posterity on the way out: https://i.imgur.com/EZXEwQF.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Y5RyvXP.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FPwm5We.jpg https://i.imgur.com/J47Bmiy.jpg

Re: 2018

Always pack your swim trunks. Ya just never know! I know some of our alumni parties tend to lean away from the bar and more poolside. It depends on the group, and the weather!

Re: Ozzy & Jack's World Tour comes to Space Camp

I saw the Samantha Brown episode last week also and really enjoyed it. She went to some interesting places and I learned a lot about Huntsville. She seemed very enthusiastic about Space Camp, and Dr. B did a great job talking about Camp and the rocket center.

Re: Ozzy & Jack's World Tour comes to Space Camp

Yeah, at no point does the show even try to explain the mission, flight deck, team work, etc. Which I suppose is my main beef with the show. Ozzy and Jack spend the first 45 minutes of the episode screwing off in Birmingham, not even in Huntsville! So Space Camp, despite being Jack's biggest childho...

Ozzy & Jack's World Tour comes to Space Camp

Did anyone else watch Ozzy & Jack's World Tour tonight on A&E? It was the episode where they go to Space Camp.

Ozzy is one of my musical heroes, but I must admit, I wasn't prepared for the sight of seeing Ozzy, the Prince of Darkness in a SC flightsuit. A strange visual!

Re: 2018

Space Camp has built a drone course next to the rocket launch area. I think the drones are being used as part of the Robotics Camp. Not sure if they are incorporating them into the Space Camp curriculum yet.

Re: 2018

I still have a lot of details to iron out (for example, a hotel cheaper than the Marriott as I just don't want to HAB it for another week like I did in 2016), but it looks like I'm going back this year , after all! :D :) :wink: 8) They just built a new hotel directly across the highway from Space C...

Re: Camp Suggestion for 2019

So far, we have two Apollo astronauts coming, Al Worden and Ed Mitchell. There will be an attempt to break the world record for most model rockets launched at one time on July 16 (so start building your rockets now!). Later that evening, we'll have an Apollo-themed dinner. Summerfest begins after th...

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

Starbucks inside a Marriott seems to be a normal thing. The Marriott resort that hosts SPACEFEST in Tucson also has a Starbucks. That being said, I can tell you there are not too many people that are happy about this. Otters has long been the unofficial Space Camp watering hole of legend, and wiping...

Re: 2018

Speaking of rockets, Space Camp will attempt the Guinness world record for the most model rockets launched on July 16 of next year as part of their Apollo 50th anniversary. The goal is to have a million rockets fired off around the world, with each time zone launching their rockets at 9:32am, the sa...

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

FYI - Just got back from Space Camp Summerfest and the Marriott has begun renovating the hotel. All of the rooms are being remodeled, and they are putting a Starbucks in where the old Otters was. This should all be done by this time next year (50th anniversary of Apollo 11). I'm told each room will ...

Re: Dr. von T dies at 104

It is indeed a sad day. He was one of the architects of Space Camp and part of the lifeblood for so many years. He inspired countless kids, including myself. He is sorely missed!

Another movie being filmed at the Rocket Center

I was at the Rocket Center over the weekend, and a film crew from India was on location setting up. According to this article, the film, called "Zero" will be the most expensive Indian movie ever made. http://www.indiawest.com/entertainment/global/shah-rukh-khan-zeroes-in-on-huntsville-ala...

New Space Camp movie?

Found this while randomly searching space movies on iMDb. Seems to be an independent film in the works. Says Summer 2018 release, but I couldn't even find a trailer for it or any other information. Summary: "Two brothers and their childhood best friend fix up their family's retro station wagon ...

Re: Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

Someone who I haven't seen post here in a very long time is rkolker. His legendary Enterprise Team trailblazed the very first Advanced Academy curriculum and sims back in the mid-80s. They used to do some serious stuff as far as sims go, almost JSC level. I think they even did missions where they re...

Re: Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

Here is the Space Camp page about Corporate Camps: https://www.spacecamp.com/corporate It's the ultimate Space Camp experience in my opinion, since you can custom-build your curriculum, but there is a minimum number of people you need to go. I think it's something like 10 or 12. Finding that many fo...

Re: Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

I think it all depends on who your crew trainers are that week, and how much fun they want to have with you. Perhaps they feel they need to throw the kitchen sink at a group of uber space nerds and alumni veterans in order to challenge them, whereas the more casual general public "green" t...
