The Tranquility Base Rendezvous event seems to have sold out, as tickets are no longer available.
It’s a shame Neil Armstrong wouldn’t let the Space Center eke out a meager amount of money from the event.
Nevertheless, Neil Armstrong is coming and that in and of itself is a very special, rare thing!
Regarding the event, I received the following message today and was asked to pass this along:
This Thursday evening marks a very special night for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and for Space Camp. Dr. Georg von Tiesenhausen will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for Education for all he has done to inspire and educate our camp trainees over the years. We are asking for our alumni to assist us in honoring him by forming a processional line as he enters the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. Volunteers will need to be available from approximately 5pm to 6:30pm and willing to be in blue flight suits. Unfortunately, volunteers will not be able to stay for the actual ceremony. Space is limited so we are asking for a confirmation by close of business Tuesday. Please email [email protected] or 256-721-7105 if you are interested and for more details.
If you weren’t able to get tickets, you can still help out the Space & Rocket Center by volunteering for the event!
