Euro Space Center

Postby Feuerfresser » Sat Aug 05, 2017 10:56 am

Today and tomorrow I am at Euro Space Center, formerly Euro Space Camp in Belgium :-)

If anybody needs informations from here or a souvenir (Patches), please let me know, quickly.

Please recognise shipping from Europe, but a patch fits into an envelope, that's OK.

You can Email me at:

I missed this when you originally posted it, but if you bought some extras I would love one as well. Email sent.

I bought some more patches, so it is no problem to send some more :-) Sending will take a while, lot to do at work in the moment.
Jennifer asked me to write an article about the Euro Space Center Experience. I took a lot of pictures, too. I think it is a good idea to give the Administrator a text and some pictures to put them on this website. I am sorry about my English, it is not perfect. But I hope, erverybody will understand :-)

It will take a while to write this article (specially on English) - but I will do my best.
If you want to see some pictures, I added some in Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/176754605866611/ (Adult Space Camp Adventure).

Thanks, Feuerfresser! I look forward to reading all about it. Your two-day experience sounds interesting and makes me wonder why they gave up the Space Camp name if they continue to offer mini camps like this. (Much like KSC's ATX.)

Lot of work for me, but I finished. Comments are very welcome under this thread. Thank you.

You can find it on my website with some photos, too:

No so much changes. They reactivated the shuttle AMICITIA and gave her a new cockpit. The smaller Shuttle trainer was also given a new cockpit. Two mission control rooms are totally new. So, really a good experience. All the other stuff was the same, as in 2017. Unfortunatelly you cannot land the shuttle yourself. The simulation is still a little poor, but modern. Hope, they will modify this a little. Center will be closed for the next 10 month for renovation. I am looking forward to see what will be new then. I'll write another report of my visit ad will post it on my website spaceflightcenter.de but I think it will be on German this time. My old report (2017) is on English.

By the way: They don't sell Euro Space Center patches any more. So, all people who get patches in 2017 (I remember I sent some in the US and Canada) have to be lucky :-)

Thank you for the updates. What does the shuttle name AMICITIA translate to in English? I am happy to hear they still have space shuttle simulators and missions. The futuristic missions at US Space Camp are good, but require more imagination since the real spacecraft are still development themselves.

I look forward to reading your report. I will have Google translate it for me to English. :) Please let us know when your review is posted.
