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...

Re: Confession Time: I've Never Seen Space Camp

For me, it's fun to watch just to see how much the Space Camp facilities have changed since those early days. And there's also the '80s nostalgia factor. You should probably watch it just so you can get Space Camp movie references and quotes.

Re: Patch Pioneer / May 2017 ASA

The anomalies these days are ridiculous. It's one of the reasons I have not gone back as an adult. In the 80s and early 90s, the anomalies during the missions were reasonable and realistic. Perhaps with so many ADHD kids these days, there's a need to keep them more engaged.

I couldn't find a Magnus or a Hall that matched her public birthdate. So looks like you're SOL.

My understanding was the SLS building would be separate from the connector building. Sort of a "Davidson Center II" located directly behind the Davidson.

Re: Space Camp 35th Anniversary Retrospective Video - What Would You Like to See?

Any kind of retrospective should be nostalgic . I think the video should show the humble beginnings, old photos and video clips and memorabilia along with commentary from those who were there. Ed Buckbee, Dr. B, etc. Maybe even have some ex counselors from the early days telling their stories. The s...

I'm willing to bet you'll be able to get a DVD copy in the Rocket Center gift shop as soon as they are available! Ownership is always better than relying on a streaming connection. I'll agree that the Mars-push stuff seemed a bit long-winded. But I didn't mind at the time I saw it. I was happy to ge...
