I work with NASA Quest. ( http://quest.arc.nasa.gov ) We answer questions from the public on behalf of NASA. Somtimes if we get a strange odd-ball question we can forward it to a list of our experts, people who actually work in specific divisions at NASA. It is pretty neat how the process works, but...

Any time of year in Huntsville is suitable for wearing shorts ;) Although people tend to look at you funny when everyone else is wearing sweaters and long pants and you're wearing shorts and a t-shirt... never-the-less, it was snowing at home before I left for camp, so I did have something to wear s...

Those poor eggs, I remember the PS's doing the egg thing too. We watched as they dropped them off the top floor of HABI onto the plastic-covered floor at the bottom. They killed breakfast, how dare they! We had a lot of classroom sessions together as a group. One of which we did in 1998 was some Kir...

We did several experiments while we were in the classrooms in HABII and the portable classrooms in addition to the ones we did during our missions.

I was fortunate enough to get the book that was similar to the one they used for the Level 2 programme the year before. We also got the t-shirt with "Advanced Academy" written across the back. Do they still hand these out with registration? I remember they only had size adult Large and X-Large becau...

Sorry about my first message, I didn't realise it would actually turn into a 'message'. Don't mind me... I'll figure things out... eventually... The reason I started this topic was to see if they still do experiments at camp. Not just "Let's see who we can duct tape to the wall/floor/chair/whatever"...

Memorabelia

I have a black pen with Advanced Space Academy inscribed on it from July 1998. I have another one, a clear blue click pen from October 1999. I also have the first Advanced Space Academy handbook and the second generation one, which is considerably smaller. I was rather disappointed at how much they ...

This is a truly wonderful book; worth the read! It is full of stories from astronauts' experiences, some of which are highly humourous. It really gives a sense of how fun being an astronaut really is! Another wonderful book I recently obtained is "High Calling" by Evelyn Husband, wife of astronaut R...

I tried to apply for a summer counsellor position while I was between years at university, but all their positions were full with counsellors who were staying over from the winter session, go figure!

What would I be...

Although I marked ASA as my absolute favourite, I would love to teach any of the Space Camp levels. Why? Maybe it's my thought that younger kids can be fun too! If you think you have to treat kids like kids, that creates a problem right there. If you treat kids like friends and grown ups, they learn...

Camp Spaciale/Space Camp Canada

I have heard great things about Space Camp Canada. It was through Space Camp Canada that I discovered U.S. Space Camp! I attended the Challenger Centre week-long 'Space Camps' almost every year for as long as I can remember at the local space/science centre. My first year as an 'advanced astronaut' ...

Multinational teams

Any given week at Space Camp could be an International Camp without all the frills they throw in for the official International Camp each year. Being a foreigner myself, I felt right at home with my multinational teams. In 1998 I attended a summer session with a handful of other ASA teams. Some of m...

Both times I visited Space Camp ASA we had ice breakers the first night. I had the same evening counsellor both times, Jeremy, so some of the games we played were the same both times: 1. Post Office - Everyone has their chairs in a circle facing the centre with one person in the centre. THe person i...

New Flight Suit Colour

I have not been to Camp since they changed the flight suit colour. Are these new flight suits similar to the ones the counsellors used to wear (1998, 1999)? If so, I asked the store about purchasing a royal blue one in July 2003 and they told me that the royal blue flight suits were only for counsel...

The Hubble Decision

Ever since the initial news that the Hubble may be discarded there was a giant uproar: astronomers, scientists, physicists, scientists of all kinds, and public citizens alike. This has created a huge indecision with the Hubble. I hear news that is has been removed from the budget, yet I also hear ne...

New ISS Modules

I am at a loss for words! I absolutely loved going to Marshall to see the ISS mock-up, and now seeing it being donated to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center is amazing. A mate of mine who went to camp a week prior to myself was a mere 5 metres away from real astronauts working in the ISS simulator. Wh...
