Jon Parker pulled me into the Space Center's office yesterday. "Are you looking for some news for the Blog?" he asked.
"When am I not?" I replied.
He plopped down in Mr. Porter's chair and pointed to the computer screen. "Ta Da! We have online booking for private missions and camps!" My jaw fell so fast it nearly dislocated.
I leaned forward to get a better look at the screen as Jon ran me through the booking process. What most impressed me was the final prompt - payment. Space Center customers will now pay for their missions ahead of time - online. This new payment system should put an end to one or two crews that don't show up for their scheduled missions and claim they either forgot or insist they called to cancel.
If only we had this service in my day...
While in the office, I couldn't help but notice the four new Mac Minis waiting to be installed in the simulators. I was tempted to requisition one or more for the new Voyager soon to be built at Renaissance. It was a temptation, nothing more. Jon was watching me too closely :)
Go to spacecenter.alpineschools.org to book your mission on either the Magellan, Odyssey, Phoenix, or Galileo.
