Open House Update. Sentimental Trinkets, Disney and Star Wars and the Imaginarium

Hello Troops,

I just returned to the trailer after a meeting with the principal of Central Elementary School.  Permission for an Open House has been granted.  Dr. Carter and I are working out the exact details (date, time).  More information will be forthcoming.

I'm anticipating a large turn out, so we want to be sure everything is well thought out.  My staff and volunteers have heard me say over and over again, "Think what can go wrong, then make sure it doesn't".   The Open House needs that kind of careful planning if we are to accommodate the numbers I'm expecting.

Matt, Brent and I will be working from time to time in the Space Center.  Matt and Brent will be backing up the computer programs and ensuring our computers and equipment are cared for and will survive this prolonged closure.  I will be working through the Center's files and cleaning out the ships (discarding items that will not be needed in a future Center).

Everything of monetary value will be kept for the new Center or sold.  The school district will make that decision.  This blog will let you know if and when items will be offered for sale.

I'm sure I'll find many items of sentimental value to the Center's staff, volunteers and campers during my equipment survey.  These items will be sold if they have monetary value, or kept if they can be used again in the new facility.  The items will be given away if they can't be sold or reused.  Watch the blog for news and offerings. 

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr. Williamson   

And Now, the Imaginarium!

A very confused sci fi fan
Did we ever blend different sci fi universes at the Space Center?
Never  :)

One pumpkin to rule them all.

Just a few of the things brought to us through NASA research

A creative way to greet Walmart's guest.
Imaginative and very cost effective.

Oftentimes imaginative solutions won't work without 
the application of physics, mechanics and engineering.
I believe this home owner will be disappointed

Three movies in one.
"I'm going on an adventure!"

It's time to get out of the car and walk.
Do it right now.
Don't wait.

Best to have an exit stragedy before you start.

Disney buy's Star Wars!

The entertainment story of the day -- and probably the week -- is that the Walt Disney Company got one step further in its eventual goal of owning every piece of intellectual property ever created by gobbling up the entirety of George Lucas' Lucasfilm, lock, stock, and barrel-shaped robot.  Star Wars belongs to Disney.

Disney will continue to make Star Wars' movies.  The seventh movie, with a working title of “Episode 7,” is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The trilogy will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond “Return of the Jedi,” the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new “Star Wars” movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies.
