Space Camp – An Empty Nest Journey 3, 2, 1, mark. Pilot, you are a go to start auxiliary power units. Station you are a go to begin experiments. Gimbal check complete. ET arm is retracting. It will be fully retracted in 30 seconds. We are 2 minutes from lift off. All crew members are ready for lift off. That is what goes on in the control center at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama when you are performing a mock shuttle launch. Space Camp, I never knew it was a real thing when I watched the movie back in 1987.
Flyboarding in Puerto Vallarta Tick! That is the sound of checking an item of my bucket list. What was it? Flyboarding. It has been on my “gotta do it!” list for several years. Right next to swimming with manta rays (watch the video here) – which, by the way, felt like I was staring in my own National Geographic movie!
