Re: 2019?

Back in the 1990s when I first went to camp, our team patch design was put on a mission cake. There were no competitions.

Re: Enterprise - Silent Auction

From a post on Facebook: The Tail and OMS pods were removed some time ago to make use of the space. I believe it helped add to the Mars base. P.S. On one hand, I understand that there's only so much floor space. On the other hand, this change to the aesthetics of EVAs saddens me immensely. What's ne...

Re: 2019?

Here's an example of how dumbed down things have become. Attached is the evaluation from my first mission at my first weekend camp back in 1991. Yes, we were graded on our performance.

P.S. Despite the counselor comment, there was one bobble.

Re: 2019?

I would hope that USSRC would keep the shuttle sims. They are the only sims based on real life counterparts. Orion 1.0 is just someone's guess, like a video game. I've not seen Orion 2.0 so I'm unable to speak from experience on that. However, I expect that it's more of the same.

Re: 2019?

BTW, at least one of the train cars at Aviation Challenge held a B-52 sim when it was delivered back in 1993. Full cockpit, nuclear blast curtains, etc. The staff was talking about doing integrated fighter/bomber sims. :) and USSRC cleared it all out to make office space :( I have no idea when or wh...

Re: Smithsonian @ Space Academy

USSRC used to have an Adult Advanced Space Academy Elite. It was called Adult Advanced Space Academy back in 1993. This deal is a lot closer to what the Adult Space Academy was back in 1991.

Re: Smithsonian @ Space Academy

At least they let you know what you are getting for your money. Why USSRC chooses not to do something similar regarding their camps is beyond me.

P.S. I wonder if Smithsonian Journeys are part fundraiser.

Re: 2019?

I agree that the adult program content has declined and I have neither the time nor money to squander on another disappointing, frustrating, and, in a few ways, maddening experience. Yet at the same time, I am under some time pressure given Deby’s medical conditions. I have to go when I can and unfo...

Re: 2019?

There's an Adult Advanced Space Academy listed for 11/3. Since there's no description of the program on the website, I asked for a sample schedule. I am hoping that this will be like the Elite program. We'll see what comes back. P.S. On second look, it's priced way under the Elite camp yet significa...

Thank you, Wes for the continued follow-ups. Perhaps Space Race garnished USSRC's available cash.. The HOA where I live has tried that a few times when it had a judgement and found out where the defendant banked.

Restoration efforts

Wow! Pathfinder lost an elevon. Now if I could only get them to restore adult camps to what they were in the '90s.

Re: 2019?

Thank you for filling us in on weekend camp. Hopefully, USSRC was just out of the right name tags and separate shirts because somewhere there was a breakdown. Although giving the same shirt to everyone saves money, it's different than having your own unique group shirt. When we went on our Panama Ca...

That's an interesting question. I wonder if they even track those kinds of stats for all camps, not just adult.
p51 wrote:But I wouldn't imagine that's SC's target market for the adults who show up.
That's another interesting question. What, if any, is their targeted adult audience?
LOL These are some things to ask the next time I'm in a meeting with Dr. Barnhart, if and when that ever happens again.

Re: 2019?

I am going to go on a wee bit of a rant here. The adult camp page talks about learning what it takes to be an astronaut. Yet can you really do that in a one hour mission? That's barely enough time for a launch and landing, much less on orbit operations. The last time I participated in a one hour shu...
