Re: Hurricane Irma?

I heard from a friend who lives in Madison County that yesterday was much ado about nothing. Given that Irma was downgraded to a tropical depression, my guess is that they had a lot of rain today.

Re: Looking for old teammates

I couldn't find a Magnus or a Hall that matched her public birthdate. So looks like you're SOL. Hey, good thinking, both of you! I figured that it must be unlikely yet you never know. She worked on her thesis from 1991-96 according to her official bio before receiving her doctorate from Georgia Tech.

Re: Looking for old teammates

Cool! Thanks for sharing. My two youth camps and one adult camp came up. Corporate/private group camps didn't. Voila! My USSRC camps appear now. Ditto on the corporates... Yet I am unable to answer my burning question... Was the Sandy Magnus on the other team during my first camp in 1991 THE Sandy ...

Re: Looking for old teammates

On the Space Camp alumni page, you can now create an account and register to pull up old camp records. Here is a direct link to the registration page: http://www.spacecamp.com/alumni/user/register At this time, it looks like the years involved are 1989 - 2015. As my favorite hockey announcers might...

Re: 2018

Seems odd to have to create a registration in order to see the schedule dates... I wonder if someone gets a bonus based on the number of new registrations. LOL This is what USSRC told me back in April regarding Train With An Astro: As of right now we do not have any plans to offer the “Train with an...

Re: Solar Eclipse

We'll have roughly 97% totality. We ordered early and received our glasses a couple of weeks ago. I saw paper ones at Lowe's on Friday but saw none there on Monday. I am hoping for clear skies that afternoon.

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. Their estimated value was $1,500-2,500 so I can understand them having a price that they want to get before selling it. It would be nice if they said so, tho.

Re: 2018

I called Space Camp and inquired about a week long adult program for 2018. I was told the 2018 schedule has not come out yet, but should be ready within a month or so. At that point we should know if there will be one. Their 2018 fiscal year starts 10/1. End of July or so is a pretty tight window f...

Re: 2017

I recently ordered and received Dr. Rhea Seddon's book, Go For Orbit. (ordered Mon night, had it Fri)

Made me wonder.... Has USSRC ever thought about bringing in someone like Dr. Seddon for AASA? Clearly, I have no idea of the logistics yet might a woman astro draw more people?
