Re: Orbiter mockup at the old Florida STS departs...

The SC mockup is a different one from the KSC one.
The mockup that used to sit where the Atlantis Pavilion now sits, is now at The Visitor Center in Houston. It is sitting atop The sca 747 carrier plane.

Re: 1996 Groups vs Now?

I agree, I'd think that our class /student names would be in a database some place. I truly doubt that. I have a feeling there's no master list of anyone who's gone through that goes back more than a few years, if even then. I'm constantly amazed at how much info you'd think SC would have, but they...

Re: Hidden Figures

I didn’t get to the theaters to see it, so I’ll nab it on Netflix when they eventually have it. Other than here and the CollectSpace forum, I haven’t read much about it. I don’t think a single co-worker or local friend of mine saw it as I don’t recall overhearing anyone discussing the film.

Re: Additional Item Purchases When Registering For Camp

The flight suit, you’ll find for many, is a work in progress. I can see photos of myself at camp and immediately know when they’re taken for the patches on my suit. I’ve changed it every year, usually from adding a new team patch. I still need to sew the ‘prefab’ patch from 2016. I’m at the point wh...

Re: Additional Item Purchases When Registering For Camp

I’ll hit your questions from observations on adult programs since 2012 (the most recent was the week-long program in October of last year): Has anyone purchased the clothing package? If so, is it worth the value and are the items good quality and/or have nice logos, etc? If you’re hitting an adult p...

Re: The Mars Generation Movie

Wow, I hadn’t even heard of this before just now: http://ew.com/movies/2017/03/30/mars-generation-trailer/ Looks like a good movie, but it’s sort of sad that you simply CANNOT talk about Space Camp at all in the media, ever, and not focus on the kids alone. How many of us adult program alumni have h...

Re: Alabama Space And Rocket Center Patch

Yeah, we all know about the red patches and why they exist. I don’t think that’s a fair assumption at all. Sure, a FEW of us here know that, but I highly doubt everyone here does. As for the white ones, I spent a lot of time looking into their use when I found mine, and nothing came up. I’ve seen p...

Re: Alabama Space And Rocket Center Patch

That's pretty great! I don't think I've ever seen a white version, just the red. I have one in my collection and saw another on ePay a couple of years ago. I tried to figure out what they were for and I haven’t found any record of them being used in white. The original red/white/gold design was int...

A friend of mine at Boeing got me some of the stickers for this design, and one of the lapel pins. The stickers look great, but they are about three-quarters of the size of a normal NASA mission patch sticker. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v214/willysmb44/starliner_zpswhdmcn4z.jpg He was quite s...

Re: 2017

I have seen Dr. Seddon in photos from a few USSRC events, but rarely as a featured guest or speaker. Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Dottie, though, I bet she'd make a great person for this, and who better than someone who went through SC herself as a kid! I got to talk to her at the museum in...

Re: 2017

I'd love to see Hoot and Dr. Seddon, but I got the feeling they do stuff like this individually, at least as trainers for Space Camp. Does she even shown up there much? Is SC more Hoot's thing than hers? At the Alumni Festival AKA Space Camp Summerfest 2015, we got to fly simulated missions with Dot...

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

I was there a LONG time ago but they have some very impressive stuff at the museum. As for the AMARC tour, they might only give that to US residents, what with all the modern security issues and all. Time was, there were a few scrap places you could ask about and buy pieces from scrapped planes. A p...

SOLD, Pathfinder Pins

I only have two of these to sell, I assume they're from the Japanese tour of Pathfinder where it got rebuilt to look more like a 'real' orbiter. I've never seen anything like this before. You could be the only camper on your block to have a real Pathfinder pin on your lanyard! pin.jpg $10.00 each pl...

Re: Space Camp Robotics - Prime Contract Patch

Thanks for the list, I just nabbed it. Even though like many campers I'm not all that interested in the robotics portion of it, I'm always looking for camp patches that I didn't have my collection.
