Hello,

I've seen, that Adult Space Academy is available to book, now.
I'm just wondering, why they named some ASA with a number behind. Do you know, why?

F.Ex.: Adult Space Academy 4 10/28/2016 - 10/30/2016
Adult Space Academy 34
Adult Space Academy 49....

Those are the week numbers. USSRC runs on the fiscal calendar (the same used by government and military), with the new year beginning the week of 1 October.

Happy New Year's weekend everyone! Who here is planning on attending camp in 2017?

We have other plans this year and hope to return to camp soon. In the meantime, I look forward to all of your stories and photos.

Check in with your session dates and type of camp.

I'm going to adult space academy on April 14-17. And hoping to go to the train with a astronaut session when it's announced if it works out.

Not me. My wife made it very clear that going to "Hoot Camp II" in October would mean I'm not going back in 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?

But then who would look after their awesome Australian Shepherds if both of them were at camp for a week? I say they bring Hoot and Dr. Seddon, plus their pups. Aussies are super smart; they could probably flick switches or hold the less popular MOCR positions. 8O

On a more serious note, a female astronaut would be inspiring too. Though any astronaut that would accept such an assignment gets my thumbs up.

At the Alumni Festival AKA Space Camp Summerfest 2015, we got to fly simulated missions with Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger. She is a great friend of Space Camp and an awesome, down-to-earth person. She would be a perfect female astro for AASA since she is also a Space Camp Hall Of Famer. I think she still lives in the Seattle area, so it might be harder to get her than Hoot/Rhea since they are nearby in Nashville.

I'd love to see Hoot and Dr. Seddon, but I got the feeling they do stuff like this individually, at least as trainers for Space Camp.
Does she even shown up there much? Is SC more Hoot's thing than hers?

I got to meet Dottie a while back and she was one of the nicest former a astronauts I've ever met.

I have seen Dr. Seddon in photos from a few USSRC events, but rarely as a featured guest or speaker.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
Dottie, though, I bet she'd make a great person for this, and who better than someone who went through SC herself as a kid!
I got to talk to her at the museum in Seattle, standing right next to the FFT that used to be at JSC:

And I was smart enough to bring some stuff for her to sign:
