The early days of Space Camp were heady ones. The camp was a press darling. The New York Times ran an early article, and TV news outlets such as The Today Show and Good Morning America also ran features. Inquiries about Space Camp poured in from around the United States. But in a much bigger, less connected world, international press coverage was virtually nonexistent.
And so it’s quite the novelty to see this article from the December 29, 1983 issue of the Australasian Post out of Australia.
At only two pages, and photos taking up most of the space, there’s not an awful lot of editorial content. But it’s perhaps the earliest lookback at Space Camp I’ve ever seen from an international source.
