The Space Center YouTube Film Festival. The Imaginarium.


     A hush fell over the standing room only crowd at the new downtown Troubadour Theater. The lights dimmed as two bright spots found their mark on Mr. Williamson.  Dressed in his rented tux, Mr. Williamson walked across the stage, stopping briefly to touch the red velvet curtains hiding the silver screen behind.  He nodded in approval. The downtown Troubadour was first class all the way.  No corner cut in the construction or its apparel. 




      Finding the X marked at center stage, Mr. Williamson stopped and adjusted the oversized 1930's radio microphone level to his mouth.  He cleared his throat while taking a moment to wipe his forehead with his clean white handkerchief.  

     "Welcome to The Troubadour!" he bellowed. The audience responded with thunderous applause. The overly enthusiastic rose to their feet.  The former Space Center director waited for the audience to fully show their appreciation. He continued as the clapping abated. "Tonight we have the best Space Center videos gleaned from the YouTube depository for your enjoyment.  They span several years and cover many topics from advertisements for missions to videos made specifically for mission tactical screens.  



     Sit back, relax, purchase some sweets, popcorn, or a cool soft drink from the lovely usherettes moving up and down the aisles. The Troubadour is here to serve you. Consider it your home away from home.  Now let's dim the house lights and drift away on the magic carpet embroidered with good times passed."

Four Hours: A Space Trip

Directed by MARK T. LEWIS Featuring VICTOR WILLIAMSON

Lights bleed red, flickering with each torpedo impact. Music pounds, ushering adrenaline-fueled choices towards their hapless outcome. Will the starship Voyager and its youthful crew survive? Moments like these come often to the elementary school students hosted by Victor Williamson. As the man behind the scenes at the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center, Victor has built five spaceship simulators to make learning memorable and push the frontier of education. Victor's work and vision as a public educator are a welcome presence in a country eager for changes in the way our kids are taught.

Megan and the staff performing the famous Summer Disco Pizza Dance one last time. Megan enters the MTC on Wednesday.  She and Taylor asked if they could dance it one last time for our overnight camp on December 12.  This was done just before the campers were asked to cast their votes.  The campers really got into it at the.  Watch it to the end.

This is NOT a mission of the CMSEC, it's more the staff having fun in the spirit of what we do as the Space Center. fun in the spirit of what we do as the Space Center.

Anna Edmundson recreated (and embellished a bit) the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Minecraft. She wanted to make it seem like a futuristic spaceport with real ships. She also wanted to include the new Odyssey as well as the old so she just put it right on top, since the remodel took out the Voyager and the Odyssey.
