Re: 2018

The oddest thing happened very recently. My pal Steve from SC texted me a photo of one of the week-long adult sessions this fall. I made a "hmmm" comment and my wife overheard. She asked what it was and I showed her the text, simply surprised they're doing a week-long session and for no ot...

Re: Camp Suggestion for 2019

Naturally, I like the idea. I'd imagine they're gonna do something for the 50th. That said, do you mean an Apollo landing sim? I can't imagine how that'd work as none of the hardware at SC would work for a LM landing on the moon but I know the software is there for the Altair lander, as I did a luna...

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 wipin...

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. Geez, another Starbucks? Yeah, if the Marriott needed one thing, it's was one of those... :roll: I'm to...

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

Has anyone heard anything new about adult campers staying at the Marriott? You mean officially , as part of the package? That's news to me, but it'd be great if it's true. I've known several people who stayed at the Marriott the entire time they were at SC, but I've yet to do so. I was at the week-...

Re: 2018

One would think that a weeklong camp means appreciably more mission time than a weekend camp. However, the weeklong has even less mission time proportionally than the weekend ones (based on the sample schedules without meals) - 20% versus 40%. I haven't measured it, but I also wouldn't argue agains...

Re: 2018

I am debating a camp this year because I know people attending in September yet I am disappointed in the sample schedules. Camp time and more importantly to me, mission time, keeps shrinking in comparison to the good 'ol days. I've heard this from others as well, that back in the day, there was mor...

Re: 2018

The big question: who is going to Space Camp this year? Not me, unfortunately. Nor I. My wife and I spent three weeks in the UK/Europe in May, so that expended all the time off (and a lot of money) for this year in regard to going anywhere fun. We didn't see anything space related (even though our ...

Re: SpaceCamp Anniversary

I wasn't aware of the date that the movie was first released. That said, I do remember seeing it new in the theaters right after it first came out. I grew up within a few hours drive of space camp as a kid, but there was no way I was ever going to go when I was young. I grew up in a house where we d...

Re: Another movie being filmed at the Rocket Center

It'll probably have an odd musical number somewhere on it, then.
It'll probably be better than Space Warriors, I'd bet.

Re: Luna Replicas

I took a really good look at the jackets. As much as I would love to have one of the yellow ones, I'd like to see,one in person first. The outside might be right, or very close, but I do wonder about the linings. I've been lucky enough to see a couple of real ones over the years, and took a real goo...

The OTHER STA...

I thought you'd like this, photos of the other STA airplane. This one is at the Evergreen aviation museum in McMinnville, Oregon (where the Howard Hughes "Spruce Goose" plane resides today). Sadly, she's stuck in the back of the parking lot, not far from several modern USAF fighters. They ...

Re: Astronaut Wings: new order!

I had no idea that company made them; I'll be sure to tell people about that option after this run is complete if anyone else wants one. I had some made by Jennifer in the first run; and they look perfect. Just an FYI, SC hall of famer Hoot Gibson was the one who designed these wings. Hoot told me t...

Re: Smell

Smells can be funny. Growing up in Florida, I had terrible sinus problems and had a crummy sense of smell until I got out of there (it came in handy in the Army, though, not being able to smell much of the time). The idea of a smell triggering a memory was an alien concept until I got older and my s...

I believe you are likely the only person on this forum who has attended both the European version of Space Camp as well as the one in Huntsville. Thank you for the report, and the excellent photos. This is the best coverage I have ever seen of the Belgian Center.

A few counsellors I know have kept every mission patch they were given I sent the two to the trainers I really liked and appreciated and I know each still have them. That being said, I think very few teams actually go on to make a team patch, and those are mostly adults, not kids. yeah, I was think...
