Live Hangout with me at RocketFest!

By Phil Plait | September 3, 2012 11:55 am

As I write this I am in Huntsville, Alabama at Space Camp! I’m here for
RocketFest, a celebration of space with music, talks, and a Saturn V full of fun stuff. We’re doing this to raise money for the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Foundation.

We’ve set up a live Google+ Hangout, and if all is well it’s embedded below. It starts at 2:00 Central time (19:00 UTC), and you’ll see performances by Molly Lewis, Ken Plume, Joseph Scrimshaw, and Marian Call.

You can donate to this great cause at the RocketFest page!

And here’s the video!

    The performances were awesome, but the live fieldtrip was unforgettable. The pure wonder and enthusiasm of everyone was surreal. Thank you all!

    And with that amount of kerosene, LOX and H2, that’s a lot of fun!

    If you would like to fly some of the Spacecraft past and future on your computer may I sugest the 2010 version of Orbiter, Its free to download and use and has add ons. It comes with the Space Shuttle Atlantis and the ISS space Station ,a few exparimental spacecraft , and other Space Craft you can add on. I just added the Apollo Moon misions add on. you can also make your own flight scenios. If you always wanted to be an Astronaut this is your game.
