Re: 2018

I was at 'Hoot Camp' last year (Bob Springer was there, too) and there was only one team. I think that's why they're not doing it this year. It worked out great for those of us there as we had Hoot around often (and got to hang with him every night at the bar at the Marriott) and that alone made it ...

Re: Trading Post

I need to go through all the SC stuff I have to see what I'm willing to trade, as I have a lot of duplicate items, especially patches... Mostly, I'm looking for the following in Adult XL size: Early Avirex light blue flight suit (they might not have made them in Adult sizes) "pre-STS51L" s...

Re: Solar Eclipse

We're in the ~90% zone, and whilst I am scheduled to be in the office that day, I plan on getting outside to see it - with my ever-so-simple pinhole camera. Same here, couldn't get the day off (of course). My eye doctor sent an email that mentioned not looking at it directly, then mentioned eclipse...

Re: Online store not working...

Let's face it, even the old site was very poor at showing you what you could get from the gift shop (you could always tell the die-hards at the gift shop at Huntsville, going through the place mumbling to themselves or holding up something to a pal while saying, "Hey, this wasn't on the website...

Wow, not a lot of stuff on it. Real hard to look anything up, too.

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

Hotdog wrote: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 sort of thing you expect for an anniversary or tribute of so many years.

I agree 100% with the above.

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

I have only ever been there as an adult and can't really say my life has been affected by SC, even though I've loved the 4 times I've been so far.
I don't think any video I could do other than the slideshows I've done could be of interest to anyone.

But if you don't know what they have, calling them doesn't help much. As it will be late 2018 or later the next time I get back to SC, the online store is the only way to know what they have.

Re: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

Market value is the price that a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept. In any normal auction, there is a minimum price listed. None have been listed for this suit for any of the countless auctions in which it has been listed. I've 'won' it more than once, only to have the listi...

Re: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

I know of at least four different places that the suit was listed on in auctions, and it was withdrawn every time. I bid on it into separate auctions, only to have the item retracted each time. I'm not 100% convinced anyone's actually going to sell the thing at this point. I bid twice, and I'm not w...

Online store not working...

I tried looking at what SC has these days, but the online store isn't working at all. They changed formats again, it seems and the main page doesn't have a link to the gift shop I could find. I had to Google it. I know they have some 35th anniversary stuff now, I hope they fix the online gift shop s...

Re: The Mars Generation Movie

As far as I know, Netflix bought full rights to it, so it should be on Netflix forever. “Forever” is such a relative concept for Netflix. They pick up and drop stuff faster than a toddler with their toys. It’s the primary reason I still buy DVDs or Blu-Rays of movies I really like. Others say, “but...
