Wow, not a lot of stuff on it. Real hard to look anything up, too.

Re: Space Camp 35th Anniversary Retrospective Video - What Would You Like to See?

Hotdog wrote:Any kind of retrospective should be nostalgic. I think the video should show the humble beginnings, old photos and video clips and memorabilia along with commentary from those who were there. Ed Buckbee, Dr. B, etc. Maybe even have some ex counselors from the early days telling their stories. The sort of thing you expect for an anniversary or tribute of so many years.

I agree 100% with the above.

Re: Space Camp 35th Anniversary Retrospective Video - What Would You Like to See?

I have only ever been there as an adult and can't really say my life has been affected by SC, even though I've loved the 4 times I've been so far.
I don't think any video I could do other than the slideshows I've done could be of interest to anyone.

But if you don't know what they have, calling them doesn't help much. As it will be late 2018 or later the next time I get back to SC, the online store is the only way to know what they have.

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. In any normal auction, there is a minimum price listed. None have been listed for this suit for any of the countless auctions in which it has been listed. I've 'won' it more than once, only to have the listi...

Re: Jon McBride's Training Flight Suit

I know of at least four different places that the suit was listed on in auctions, and it was withdrawn every time. I bid on it into separate auctions, only to have the item retracted each time. I'm not 100% convinced anyone's actually going to sell the thing at this point. I bid twice, and I'm not w...

Online store not working...

I tried looking at what SC has these days, but the online store isn't working at all. They changed formats again, it seems and the main page doesn't have a link to the gift shop I could find. I had to Google it. I know they have some 35th anniversary stuff now, I hope they fix the online gift shop s...

Re: The Mars Generation Movie

As far as I know, Netflix bought full rights to it, so it should be on Netflix forever. “Forever” is such a relative concept for Netflix. They pick up and drop stuff faster than a toddler with their toys. It’s the primary reason I still buy DVDs or Blu-Rays of movies I really like. Others say, “but...

Re: Last mission for Atlantis

Not even the older ones. I know there are plenty of kids who are still kids today who ran missions in the Atlantis. I was lucky enough to pull a CDR slot in my only mission in that orbiter, in 2013. It was an excellent mission, probably the best one I ever took part in, if I do say so myself. http:/...

Re: Orbiter mockup at the old Florida STS departs...

The SC mockup is a different one from the KSC one.
The mockup that used to sit where the Atlantis Pavilion now sits, is now at The Visitor Center in Houston. It is sitting atop The sca 747 carrier plane.

Re: 1996 Groups vs Now?

I agree, I'd think that our class /student names would be in a database some place. I truly doubt that. I have a feeling there's no master list of anyone who's gone through that goes back more than a few years, if even then. I'm constantly amazed at how much info you'd think SC would have, but they...

Re: Hidden Figures

I didn’t get to the theaters to see it, so I’ll nab it on Netflix when they eventually have it. Other than here and the CollectSpace forum, I haven’t read much about it. I don’t think a single co-worker or local friend of mine saw it as I don’t recall overhearing anyone discussing the film.
