More Photos from the Old Central Elementary School and Space Center (A Continuation from Last Week's Post). This Week's Imaginarium Theater
Sunday, August 22, 2021
A Few of the Last Pictures of the Old Central School. Our Landing Party Territory. Lots of Memories in those Hallways. Imaginarium Theater.
Now that the Space Center is operating at full steam in the new Central School, I thought now would be a good time to publish a series of photographs of the old Central School taken by Central's head custodian, Brandon Pace. These photos were to be the the last detailed photos of the old building in all its glory.
I'm posting them here because most of the old Central School was truly a part of the Space Center. Nearly every square inch of that building, including the roof, was used over the many years as ship sets and landing party destinations. As you look at these parting photographs of the old school, think back on all the time you spent in those halls, rooms, and crawl spaces. Do you have a fond memory sparked by looking at one of these photos? Please share that memory with me. SpaceCampUtah@gmail.com

A New Way to Get Your Space Center Fix. Introducing Celestial Horizons. You've Got to Check This Out. This Week's Imaginarium Theater. Enjoy!
We’re super excited to have officially launched Celestial Horizons! Celestial Horizons is an interactive sci-fi narrative that’s been started by several previous Space Center staff. This Saturday (May 22), we will be starting a podcast that centers around the crew of the Ark Lyravea, a sleeper ship with 100,000 people frozen in cryosleep as they travel to a distant solar system. Things aren’t going as smoothly as they would hope. Our audience will have the opportunity to listen to the podcast or read the narrative content, then participate in discussions on our Discord server acting as crew members of The Ark. Those discussions will influence what will happen next in the story. The outcome of the podcast will set up the society that we follow in later Celestial Horizons content.
The Story of Celestial Horizons
In 2197, we left Earth behind to claim the stars as our own. We took starships. Dreams frozen in time. A gate to bring us home.
Celestial Horizons is comprised of many stories set in a single shared universe. It principally follows the inhabitants of Kepler-62, a solar system 900 light years away, after it has been colonized by a ship from Earth. After hundreds of years, the time has come to reactivate the gate—a wormhole device paired to one back at Earth—to make contact once more with the rest of humanity. But Kepler-62, called Hypatia by those who colonized it, is full of dangers, and even greater threats lie beyond the gate. Celestial Horizons is the story of the human spirit, the challenges of a technology-mediated world, and the decisions we make, both large and small, that shape the world we live in.
Our stories draw heavily from the rich traditions of the science-fiction genre. Our narratives are based in the ideas, concerns, and developments of our day. We are pulling heavily from the physical and social sciences and will be exploring the challenges and intricacies of our modern world through a futuristic lens. You will find nuanced explorations of difficult situations created by conflicting ideas and worldviews. We hope to create a safe space to engage with the multifaceted challenges of our day.
However, at its core, our stories will be exciting. They take place at the forefront of our future timeline, following the people shaping its history with skill and cunning. You will be able to battle, explore, negotiate, spy, and strategize their way through a variety of challenges on their way to victory. Your decisions then become canon in our story world, allowing you to personally affect the way events develop. Through the collective action of the community, individual battles will be won and lost, space-faring nations will rise and fall, and the fate of humanity will be decided.
- What makes this different than other science fiction shows? Our audience has the unique opportunity to interact with our show. As you watch the latest episode you will be able to influence and help shape the course of the story.
- How can I help? Help spread the news! Get involved with our Discord and join our other social media pages. Growing our audience is the only way we will be able to continue creating podcasts, live-streamed video episodes, software, and the many other projects that we have planned. In the future we will launch a crowdfunding campaign to help fund the show as well as additional projects we have planned for the future. Keep an eye on social media and our News page for updates!
- Who is this show for? Our target audience is anyone who enjoys science fiction, drama, philosophy, or moral dilemma. Although we do not categorize our content as “explicit”, we cover some mature topics and our scripts contain some moderate language, which may not be appropriate for all audiences.
