Alex and Tre have become good friends, especially during their time in the ISS. They cooperated and communicated so well with Mission Control that they completed almost twice as many checklists as were required in their mission!Amber scoots her way through the airlock, on her way to the exterior of the shuttle.
Using fancy diffraction grating, Alex and Tre identify unknown elements via the spectrum of color that they show.Because their team leader at Space Camp is from Australia, the Von Lions were treated to some vegemite (typically a paste made from vegetable additives and spices) It seems like they weren’t fans.
Team Von Lions had the chance to launch their rockets that they built earlier in the week in a big, grassy field under a bright sky. All 3 USDB astronauts on the Von Lions team successfully recovered their rockets!
With all 3 missions completed for both teams, the Jolly Goddards had some down time and were able to rock climb. Naturally, the Utah students were GREAT at it! Amber with two of her teammates, Kasmine and Kyle.Alex with two of his buddies, Tre and Thomas.
For one of their last Space Camp activities, the Von Lions and the Jolly Goddards joined forces and performed a Sea, Land and Air (SEAL) Operation. Each team obtained their objectives, after getting their proper camouflage and marking their faces with charcoal and ash to help hide themselves from the enemies, they set out to sneak to the tower, seize it, then escape into the woods undetected.
