Another weekend with many many missions at the CMSEC and the DSC Space Centers. It is a good time to be a Farpoint Cadet. You're choices are almost as vast as the universe itself! Yes, I'm prone to exaggeration, it is my one true fault.
At our last Farpoint general meeting, I asked the cadets to write one impression or memory from their volunteering experiences at the space centers. I'll post their responses over the next few weeks, starting tonight with Dakota's.
I'll be at the Discovery Space Center tonight chaperoning the overnight camp. I'll be sure to bring a few extra blankets. It will be cold night with snow in the morning.
Saturday's Programming Class Canceled
Speaking of snow, the weather department has issued a winter storm warning for northern Utah. We can expect accumulations on the valley floors from a day long storm. Growing up in South Dakota has taught me a healthy respect for heavy winter storms so I've decided to cancel tomorrow's Farpoint Programming Department's class at Renaissance. I don't want your parents to have to brave the weather and their fellow Utah drivers.
A Space Center Experience
By Dakota H.
Over a year ago, I was looking on the calendar for some Voyager missions. I had just barely become a Space Center volunteer and I wanted to start off strong. Then I saw three Voyager mission on the same day. I was so excited. I wrote the emails to Mr. Williamson and I sent them. As the day approached, the excitement built and then the day before the missions I looked on the blog and the most shocking news was before my face. The Space Center had closed. I was devastated. That day was suppose to be one of the greatest days in history for me and it turned out to be one of the worst. But it's OK now since the Space Center has reopened.
