Space Camp Operations Center

Post by Hotdog »

In more positive news, ground has been broken for the construction of the new "Space Camp Operations Center" next to the Hab. While the name reads like it will be the new home for Space Camp sims, the sign out front reads "A new cyber camp facility for the Space & Rocket Center". I'm awaiting further clarification on the exact purpose for the building, but I'm told it is not a replacement for the aging Hab, and the two buildings will be connected. More on this next week.

In the meantime, I swung by the Rocket Center over the weekend and snapped a pic for you guys.

Lots of changes are afoot.
God knows when I'll be there next time, but things will be quite different by whenever that happens...

The formal announcement of the SCOC facility was made on Friday:
Construction is already underway on the 40,600 square foot center, which will include a 1,000-seat auditorium, 10 classrooms and laboratories and provide a permanent home for the center’s U.S. Cyber Camp. The exterior of the building is a replica moonscape.
Full story and video flythrough of the new building can be seen here:
