Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

A recent discussion on anomalies on missions at SC on another thread prompted me to post this here. What do you think of how the missions are done in this regard? I have had 'space ghosts' that I fully feel thought of us as being there for their own personal amusement. I had a 12-hour LDM at the wee...

Re: Patch Pioneer / May 2017 ASA

Frankly, the adult program anomalies I experienced last year were down right silly. I got the feeling we were there to entertain the trainers.
It got tiring really fast on the LDM that year.
In the miliyary, I never trained people like that. If it couldn't happen in real life, its not training.

Well-rendered, no question.
But the motto and bee image, you'd have to have been there to understand it, no doubt.

Re: Callsigns??

It's done on an informal basis, at least among the adult camps. I know of a few people who've been plenty of times and never got one. I got one on the final day of my 4th camp, last year. Someone's gotta think of something that suits something that happened to you. In my case, my knucklehead pilot h...

Wow, my SC suit is an ASTRONAUT'S one???

I found this to be hilarious. Take a good look at the “astronaut” suit they used as an example! http://blogs.socsd.org/kguzas/3d-printing/mission-patch/ Yep, that's my own SC flight suit, from just before my third trip to SC. I assume the creator of that blog did a google search and this was the fir...

Re: SpaceCamp (Finally) Coming to Blu-Ray!

I'd buy a copy just for the commentary track. I'd love to hear the insights on that, especially the SC-filmed scenes.

Re: Hurricane Irma?

Yep! We've had regular storm systems come through Huntsville in the past that were much worse. A whole lotta nothing here in Huntsville, thankfully. Thanks, Vincent. I couldn't find much on the Huntsville new about the storm, so I took that as a good sign. According to CollectSpace, KSC's visitor c...

Hurricane Irma?

Does anyone know what effects this storm had on SC? I know it's closed today due to the weather.
I've always wondered what'd happen if a really bad storm or tornado hit that vertical Saturn V mockup. I know it's well anchored but I have a feeling it'd rip the top off of it, at least...

This is the second different version of the Alumni database that I've seen. Beats me why SC has to re-invent the wheel so often!

I've never seen to AC other than flying the F-14 and F-18 sims from Space Camp, but as a former Army Captain and having spent a lot of time in the field in various conditions (most of them considered unacceptable to human habitation), I'd recommend the following based on my experiences in high-humid...

Re: Solar Eclipse

I found a set of eclipse glasses, but even still I only took quick peaks, even with them (as you can never be too careful with your eyes). I tried to take a photo or two through the lens for the glasses, but couldn't get it to focus with a darn. So cool seeing a tiny sliver of sun as it got close to...

Re: 2018

I was at 'Hoot Camp' last year (Bob Springer was there, too) and there was only one team. I think that's why they're not doing it this year. It worked out great for those of us there as we had Hoot around often (and got to hang with him every night at the bar at the Marriott) and that alone made it ...

Same here, couldn't get the day off (of course). My eye doctor sent an email that mentioned not looking at it directly, then mentioned eclipse...

Let's face it, even the old site was very poor at showing you what you could get from the gift shop (you could always tell the die-hards at the gift shop at Huntsville, going through the place mumbling to themselves or holding up something to a pal while saying, "Hey, this wasn't on the website...
