Marshall Space Flight Center sent out an invite to its employees stating,
Marshall team members are invited to join ABC news for a special LIVE broadcast at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Thursday, Sept. 17, from 5:00-8:00 a.m. Participants must arrive no later than 5:00 a.m. and wear red shirts. ABC news is looking for a large crowd to be on TV in their audience. Parking will be provided near the entrance of the museum.
This broadcast will highlight Marshall Center’s contributions to human spaceflight.
And Space Camp just sent the following message:
There you have it! Tune in tomorrow morning at 7:30am CDT to your local ABC affiliate!
Most of the clips and presentations from the 2015 International Space Camp Opening Ceremony (as well as the educator graduation) are now posted on the Hab1.com YouTube channel!
There is an issue with the Indian presentation, as a video they showed caused the owner of that clip to use YouTube’s content ID system and issue a copyright strike against me. It might be six months until I can post the entirety of the opening ceremony (or any other clip longer than 10 minutes).
A few lucky Space Campers had the good fortune today to visit the Marshall Space Flight Center and hear NASA Astronaut Barry Eugene “Butch” Wilmore talk about his recent time aboard the International Space Station.
Besides talking about the highlights of his trips to space, Wilmore took several opportunities to stress the importance of a STEM education if one is interested in pursuing a career as an Astronaut.
Several local news outlets covered the event, and you can read and watch more about his visit if you are so inclined.
Last night’s opening ceremony kicked off another year of amazing experiences and memories for students and teachers from all over the world!
Social media enables those attending ISC to share those experiences with the rest of us! A great way to keep up with how ISC progresses through the week is to keep an eye on the twitter activity from the participants.
@ShannaPeeples – Shanna Peeples – 2015 National Teacher of the Year / 2015 Texas Teacher of the Year
@LuiMonica – Monica Lui – 2015 American Samoa Teacher of the Year
@JaclynRoller – Jaclyn Roller Ryan – 2015 Virginia Teacher of the Year
@Gail_Adams – Gail Adams – 2015 West Virginia Teacher of the Year
For your convenience, I’ve created a list of these ISC 2015 participants on Twitter you can subscribe to or just visit to see all of their recent posts in one spot! Should I turn up any more tweeting International Space Campers, I’ll update the list as well as this post.
