A WayBack Machine Photo. Farpoint Academy Update. Science News. The Imaginarium


Hello Troops,
Our WayBack Machine photo of the day is coming from the summer camps of 2002.  This is the original Magellan Control Room.  Everybody and everything was crammed into this timy space.  Randy Jepperson is the one in red, wearing the sheepish smile.   The rest of the staff from front to back are:  1) Stacy Carrell   2) Ben Hoglund  and 3) Rio Downs.

Questions Regarding Farpoint Academy

 A few of The Troubadour's readers asked about Farpoint Academy, the Space Center foundation's (Space EdVentures Foundation) after school program.  Farpoint Cadets will be the volunteers at the new Discovery Space Center at Stonegate in Pleasant Grove.  They may also volunteer at the Space Center at Central School if our foundation gets permission to rent the simulators for after school, Saturday and summer programs from the school district's building rental committee.  To make it easier, Volunteers = Cadets, but Cadets do not have to be volunteers.  The Academy may have students who only want to participate in the classes, SimLabs and LDM's.

I hope I made that as clear as mud.

Mr. Williamson

Clues of Life's Origin Found in Galactic Cloud.
You and I are both made up of an eclectic collection of organic molecules.  A lot of interesting molecules go into making up all life on Earth, from the amino acids which make up proteins to the nucleobases that encode our very DNA, but where they exactly come from (on a cosmic scale) is still one of science’s great mysteries. And as with any good mystery, the only solution will be to solve each of the separate pieces of the puzzle — and the latest piece of this puzzle has just been spotted in a huge gas cloud in the center of our galaxy.  Read On
