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: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

Looks like they held it back again. The last time I checked, the bidding was at $700.

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?

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

Command and Control about a real life Titan missile explosion will be on American Experience on PBS on 1/10. My guess is that they filmed at least some part of it at the museum.

Re: Pima Air and Space Museum

I haven't been, but I've heard it is awesome. I plan on going in June. One thing I would not miss is their sister facility, the Titan Missile Museum. It's about 30 minutes away. http://www.titanmissilemuseum.org/ If I remember correctly from the book Command and Control by Eric Schlosser, that is a...

Re: Accomodation included?

According to the Space Shuttle Operator's Manual, shuttle bunks were 1.75 x 0.75 meters which translates to 69 x 30 inches. They, however, had the best "mattress", i.e., weightlessness.

Re: Accomodation included?

Has the USSRC ever thought about renting air mattresses to adults? It seems like a low cost solution to the mattress problems. Of course, there would be cleaning & storage. Yet if you break/trash it, you buy it.
