There are space camps at several NASA centers now. I am going to the one in my home state. I have already been to the one in Florida, which pretty much rocks. That's where I discovered that the Saturn 5's jet cone is bigger than my living room, possibly bigger than my whole apartment.

I think Tater should organize an annual Potatoe Camp for those of us ("lab rats" as he once referenced) who paticipate in his site. The Lee Atwater people have an annual event... I mean, Tater should have some obligation to us. I would like to hear some suggestions for activities.

Woo-Hoo! Countdown is T-minus not very much.
Off to Space Camp for the week. Try not to miss me too much...

|Hey, Amelia... how about a progress report on space camp? Are you having a blast?|

Capsule summary: Not Insanely Great, but pretty darned fun!
The zero-gravity wall is still the best toy there. I would spend all day on it if they let me. It clearly demonstrates the difference between "floating" and "zero-G". It's really counter-intuitive to have to push yourself down.
The biggest difference between California Space Camp and Florida Space Camp was the food. In California, the salad bar had mesclun and artichoke hearts every night. And on Mexican night, the salsa and the guacamole were both home-made with fresh cilantro.
Oh yeah, our model rocket flew really, really high. It was awesome, dudes.
I like being a ten-year-old for the weekend.

What is space camp? Like guys in an astronaut suit who act like they're gay? Sorry, couldn't resist.
