Re: The Mars Generation Movie

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...

Re: Last mission for Atlantis

The first "real" shuttle sims at Space Camp were Discovery and Columbia. Not sure which one came first. Columbia was the sim for the younger Camp kids and Discovery for the teenage campers. Discovery was the sim being used in the movie where Kevin crashes and burns on their training missio...

Re: Last mission for Atlantis

I would hope she would be restored back to movie quality and put in a future museum shuttle exhibit. But I'm guessing they'll use another one of the orbiter sims for that, maybe Endeavour. From what I hear, parts of Atlantis will be auctioned off at this year's Summerfest.

Re: The Mars Generation Movie

The movie was awesome! Great promo for Space Camp and the push for manned Mars flights. Lots of familiar faces in the movie, too! Very well done and a must-see for everyone here!

Welcome back, Kale! I doubt I'll be able to meet you the week before Summerfest, as I'll be getting ready for the big event during that time. Too bad ya can't put your trip off a week, you sure are missing a great event! The A-12 isn't quite on the stick just yet. They're just now getting it strippe...

Re: Alabama Space And Rocket Center Patch

Yeah, we all know about the red patches and why they exist. Blachwk has encountered an extremely rare variant and was inquiring about that. My guess is they just needed a white one to put on white "spacesuits" or something at the museum where the red patches didn't quite work as well.

Re: STA news

If I recall correctly, the amphitheatre is a part of Phase II of the project, and will have its own fundraiser. I expect we'll find out more about that after the ribbon cutting on July 13.

She looks good! She'll be getting a bath soon, and stairs so you can get up and see inside the cockpit.

Ribbon cutting and dedication will kick off Summerfest in July.

Here it is being reassembled and cleaned before it goes up on the display mounts. I'll get some better shots when I go visit next week. It should be up on the mounts by then.

Re: 2017

At the Alumni Festival AKA Space Camp Summerfest 2015, we got to fly simulated missions with Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger. She is a great friend of Space Camp and an awesome, down-to-earth person. She would be a perfect female astro for AASA since she is also a Space Camp Hall Of Famer. I think she s...

Re: Hidden Figures

I'll admit I had my doubts about this movie, as I do with any "realistic" space movie that comes out. But so far, all of my space buddies who have seen it have raved about it. So I will be checking it out this week.

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

I haven't been, but I've heard it is awesome. I plan on going in June. One thing I would not miss is their sister facility, the Titan Missile Museum. It's about 30 minutes away.

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

No worries about being left out. Even if everybody goes to the "Library" after hours, I'm sure they'll let you tag along (you just might have to settle for a non-alcoholic beverage). :| Which reminds me of another difference, some of your adult team members may opt to stay/sleep in a Marri...

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

Yes, what Jennifer said. Expect the adult camp to be a different and unique experience from what you experienced previously. You will likely be the youngest person on your team. Everyone else on your team will have a high level of enthusiasm because like Jen said, they're all there on their own dime...

Re: Adult Camp Vs. Advanced Academy

Is the 4-day not being offered during your spring break? For all the reasons P51 mentioned, you should at least go for the 4-day if its available. That extra day will make a huge difference, and it doesn't cost a whole lot more.
