Space Camp’s 20th

Moving towards the right and looking towards the back, you can see they put some of their film and video exploits in the case. A copy of SpaceCamp can be seen, as well as the soundtrack to the movie on LP. To the right of the LP, you can see a copy of the Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen video, “The Case of the U.S. Space Camp Mission.” A few pieces of “Available in our Gift Shop” items can be seen, along with a few more newspaper articles, a team picture from a recent Space Camp session, and old Space Camp brochures!

They have a nice collection of old camp brochures indeed (to see the covers to most of these brochures up close, be sure to check out the HabFiles)! Moving from top-to-bottom, left-to-right, you can see in this photo the 1985 and 1991 brochures, then the 1990 and 1993 brochures, followed by the 1988, 1986, and the 1989 brochures.

20th Anniversary Display Case

Quite a lot going on here. You can see more newspaper clippings, a (golf?) towel with the Space Camp logo on it, Space Camp Barbie, brochures from 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002, and the Space Camp Mission to Mars mission manual. Also in sight is a modern Space Camp certificate and wings, along with a recently used name badge (they have bar codes on them now!). Also in the case is a newly pressed copy of the Throttle Up! CD-ROM. They took the Throttle Up! Manual and made an interactive CD out of it. Very cool!

20th Anniversary Display Case

Sitting on top of the display case were two cardboard stands with images from Space Camp as it was in 1982 and Space Camp as it is now in 2002.

While we’re near a photo of the UAT, I figured I’d stick this in right here. It would seem as if they’ve got all new toys in the UAT now, as this setup looks pretty slick…makes the old one look downright…well, old!
