Re: Adult Week Long October 2016

Here's a video you may like - HOOT is da man! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fkHV4fl49k Yep, Da Man, indeed. For crying out loud, the man was a carrier pilot, jet jockey, Top Gun graduate (I think), astronaut, heading the astronaut office, then air racer who WON Reno last year. Geez, and this guy...

Re: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

Does anyone have a clue what this eventually went for?
Probably for the best that I missed the auction as my wife would have cut off a vital part of my anatomy had I bid and won it... 8O

Re: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

I missed out on bidding as I was busy with something.
Still can't believe there were NO bids on eBay.

Re: Re-enacting the opening of the "Spacecamp" movie

That's really cool! I like how you even found where he parks in the movie I must admit I didn't go back and count the spaces in the movie before I did this. I might be off by one to the right. Otherwise, I did park in the space marked for "Zach Bergstrom" in the movie. I actually did this...

Re-enacting the opening of the "Spacecamp" movie

Ever want to re-create the first scene in the movie, "Spacecamp", that actually takes place at Huntsville?
I always had, and at my recent trip there, I did exactly that, and with the same music:

Anybody else having a tough time identifying the patch on her shoulder? I think it's a mission patch, but does anybody have a better idea? Beats me. I, too, can't ID the patch. Not a SC-sold patch that I have ever seen. Doesn't look like any NASA mission patch I've ever seen, though it looks like t...

Okay, you're not dipping into the medical ganja that is so popular in your state, that wouldn't make you so jittery.
Either one of two things will cure this:
1. Switch to decaff
2. Get your @ss to Space Camp!

Re: Adult Week Long October 2016

So, who's packed already? I have all my SC stuff laid out and ready to pack. I use an old large pack from my Army days as my carry-on bag, and it's big enough for my camera bag and other stuff. I'm taking one change of clothes in that bag, just in case a nightmare scenario occurs with my bags on the...

Re: EVA Suits

I don't have a clue what they're made of, but they're freaking thick , for many reasons. I wore them twice my last time in 2014, both on the Moon base and EVA for the ISS and I think they have to be very heavy for all that wear. The ice vests worked great on my EVA for all of about 10 minutes. Then,...
