It’s about time they did this, frankly. And yet, I’m surprised it had never even crossed my mind before. They’ve reissued (though one could make the argument that they’ve just now issued) the SpaceCamp movie patch! That’s right! In honor of the 25th Anniversary, Space Camp is really going back… Continue reading
I recently added an item to my collection of Space Camp memorabilia (yes, I collect this stuff) and it’s a good one! I just got a 1986 Space Camp Program Guide! Space Camp has a 1985 one, but they don’t have, to the best of my knowledge, one from 1986!… Continue reading
I don’t often mention eBay auctions here, mostly because I want to acquire things as cheaply as possible! But there is quite an exceptional auction right now. It is from the collection of Gary Beadel, a teacher who was an one of the alternates for the ill-fated 51L. Among the… Continue reading
I’ve recently come across a T-Shirt design that, unless in some way licensed from Space Camp, just can’t possibly be legal! Granted, I am not a lawyer, but it just seems to look too much like the Space Camp logo to be a coincidence (3 stars and everything). But, make… Continue reading
As was posted on Slashdot, someone has built what looks like a very good replica of an orbiter flight deck and is now auctioning it off on eBay. It can possibly be yours for just under $15,000 (plus shipping and handling)! Surely a steal! The seller has also put up… Continue reading
One of the HabForum members, Richasi, has started placing online his own archive from his collection of application guides, post cards, etc. It’s definitely impressive and when completed will include Space Camp News issues dating all the way back to 1989! Check it out!
A little less than two weeks ago, I finally bought and received A Smile as Big as the Moon. I read it quite quickly! I’m certain not every Space Camp fan has gotten around to it yet, so here’s my review, in which I’ve cited some very good reasons why you should go buy and read this book. Now!
Enjoy the review, then go and enjoy the book! Continue reading
Saturday finally came, and I was at the Space & Rocket Center well before it opened! I wasn’t alone though, as a surprising number of people arrived just as early as I did! But thankfully, I had my newly acquired membership, so I was able to get into the museum… Continue reading
A copy of very same book in which I found a picture of the Pathfinder without its SRBs is up for auction at eBay. It’s a very small book, at only 32 pages, but it’s easily worth a few bucks. The auction is here, and the seller posted the following… Continue reading
I recently acquired a currently out-of-print book titled, “Let’s Visit A Space Camp.” The book, which dates back to 1990, contained, among other great photos, one taken before the Pathfinder received its SRB’s. Pretty great stuff!
