News, The Galileo's First Flight. A Question to Our Readers. The Imaginarium.

Hello Troops,
     It's 6:38 P.M. here in the London Room at Renaissance Academy.  I've already done my volunteer hour for Shelley's First Lego League and am back to complete a few things on my every growing "To Do" list.
     Our Farpoint Cadets will have a general membership meeting this Saturday from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M.  here in the London Room.  If you're a registered Farpoint Cadet, please plan on attending (if you can).  An email about the meeting was sent out several days ago.  Contact me f you didn't get it. Perhaps you're account transmuted somewhere in the time space continuum.
     We have an update from Gary Gardner and Dream Flight Adventures, our sister program in Pennsylvania.


Gary's doing a great job promoting the space edventures philosophy through his Dream Flight Adventures company.  He has one simulator, the IKS Titan, and hopefully many more to follow.  

A Question for our Troubadour Readers

If you COULD go back in time, which Simulator's first opening mission would you MOST LIKE to experience and why?

Voyager? Odyssey (originally Pathfinder/Seeker)? The first Galileo, The current Galileo? Falcon (originally not Star Trek)? Magellan (in the Babylon-5 universe)? or Phoenix?

For the Record

The First Crew of the New Galileo. January 8, 2010

     With very little fanfare, the new Galileo officially opened for the January 8-9, 2010 Overnight Camp. The first official crew of the Galileo are pictured above. Stacy Carroll, the Galileo's Set Director, stands with them.  The new Galileo opened for private missions on January 18th. 
A special thank you to Kyle Herring, Stacy Carroll, Alex Anderson, Alex DeBirk, Spenser Robinson, and Jon Parker AND everyone else I've forgotten who played a roll in the designing and building of the new Galileo.

A Moment for the Old Timers to Remember.
