You’re going to have two opportunities to see the Space & Rocket Center on television!

First, contestants of the show, “The Amazing Race,” stopped by the USSRC to film segments of the contestants in the museum, Rocket Park, and Aviation Challenge.

Details can be read here and here.

From the Huntsville Times:

Between midnight and 4 a.m., one by one, a fleet of eight to 10 GMC Yukons rolled out of the parking lot and sloshed down Interstate 565, got off at exit 15 and headed toward the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

Motorists driving by on the interstate had no idea they were passing celebrities – members of the eighth installment of the CBS reality series “The Amazing Race.”

Also, to be aired the week after this one, is a segment on “The Early Show.” One of the anchors attended Pilot/Copilot Aviation Challenge, and a news crew was on hand to cover it.

From the article:

“All those memories came crashing back to me” during a day at U.S. Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center on Saturday said Syler, who was in town to attend the Parent/Child Aviation Challenge with her son, Cole Parham, 7.

The two were having a regular Space Camp experience, except for the video crew and television producer following them. The footage will be used for a program on Syler’s trip to Space Camp to be broadcast the week of July 25.

Syler’s co-anchors, Harry Smith, Hannah Storm and Julie Chen, and weatherman Dave Price will each attend a summer camp for a series called “The Early Show Goes to Camp.”

This is certainly great exposure for Space Camp, Aviation Challenge, and the USSRC!
