Discovery Space Center's First 3 Day Camp. Space and Science News Not to be Missed. The Imaginarium



Hello Troops,
The following section of today's post was reserved for Mr. Casey Voeks' overview of Discovery Space Center's first 3 day camp.



 

















Thank you Casey for that wonderfully written, generously descriptive and beautifully illustrated write up.  Perhaps I should let more people write for The Troubadour?   :)

I don't know troops, what do you think?  Should I be compassionate and excuse Casey, knowing how exhausted he must be; an Overnight Camp AND a 3 Day Camp all in one week.  Schedules like those really wear you out;  I should know, I've been doing this for 23 years?  I think I'll be compassionate and let Casey off this time.  The last thing you want to do after a week like that is bring work home and write a blog post for Mr. Williamson.

Instead, let me share this brief Facebook summary of Discovery Space Center's first 3 Day Camp written by Mr. Connor Larsen Esq;  a gentleman, scholar and good judge of character.
Let me sum up my week: Fire Alarm, Screaming Toes, All Nighters with Canada and Mulan, Appendicitis (Thank Heavens for Erin), No Sleep, Child's Play in 4 hours, Canada in the Atlantis, Water Games, Helga, The Game has Changed (Hehe! BJ), First down the Slip n' Slide, Sub-Lord of the votes, Beating and Tying with the Columbia in just about everything :), Costa Vida like 4,000 times, Black Ops capture the flag, Playin' at the Park, General Conference, Constant Sipping of Beverages, 2 OVs, 1 3 day camp, 9 hours of sleep all week, 3 tacticals done, 5 Appearances of Helga, 24 $ worth of votes, the best Spring Break ever!
Wow. I love my job! Discovery Space Center all the way!
Oh, and just FYI, walked out of priesthood and from across the parking lot I hear: 'HELGA!', I just turned and laughed. And then my throat started hurting :) My job is the coolest!

How about a few pictures from the 3 Day Camp showing the campers enjoying their Thursday water sports.

Chicago Goes Green

A small wind and solar generating unit used to power streetlights is seen in front of a high school on Cermak Road in Chicago, Illinois which Chicago city officials have dubbed the greenest street in America, on April 1, 2013. The Windy City has been experimenting with greener approaches to urban planning for years as part of a broader plan to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Smog-eating pavement on 'greenest street in America'
The seemingly magical material was first developed when the Vatican wanted to build a church to celebrate the 2,000th anniversary of Christianity that would stay white in the face of Rome's pollution.

Italian cement giant Italcementi developed a product that uses titanium dioxide to set off a chemical reaction with sunlight that essentially cleans the surface of the church by speeding up the decomposition process.

They discovered that it wasn't just cleaning the grime off the Dives in Misericordia church, it was also cleaning the air up to 8.2 feet (2.5 meters) above the roof's surface.
 A History of Time and the Universe
This illustration summarizes the almost 14-billion-year-long history of our universe. It shows the main events that occurred between the initial phase of the cosmos -- where its properties were almost uniform and punctuated only by tiny fluctuations -- to the rich variety of cosmic structure that we observe today, ranging from stars and planets, to galaxies and galaxy clusters.

The Planck mission has made the most precise map ever of the oldest light from our universe, the cosmic microwave background radiation, harking back to less than 400,000 years after the big bang. Patterns of light in this map reflect not only events that happened just moments after the big bang, but also the light's long journey from the distant universe to Earth. By studying these patterns, scientists can learn about the origins, fate and ingredients of our universe.
