No details yet, but a date has reportedly been set for JSC Open House: August 26 (yes, there is a chance that JSC Open House and STS-115 launching may be the same day).

The date coincides with the Ballunar Festival, already in progress.

The festival schedule does say on August 26th, "9:00 am - 5:00 pm NASA Mini Tour". I bet since it's so close to launch that the "Mini" means a lot of things will be off limits to the public. I always thought that it was so cool to stand in the middle of Mission Control and just soak it up.

Oh goody, the hottest day of the year. I was hoping Coates would bring sanity to the whole thing and have them in the spring.

Robert, is there any further word on the open house at JSC? I've searched through the JSC web site for any information on it and have found nothing...

Apparently, the Open House has turned into a tent:
quote:
NASA/JSC will support the annual Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce Ballunar Festival from Aug. 25 to 27 with a staffed exhibit tent.

The exhibit features an air-conditioned tent, two NASA Vision for Space Exploration pop ups, kids photo ops, Camelot kiosk, inflatable NASA logo, NASA game wheel, STS-115 graphic panel, astronaut autographs and a graphic panel provided by the Houston Zoo on the cooperative prairie chicken project. The Starport Gift Shop will also share a portion of the tent.

According to NASA regarding astronauts at the Ballunar Liftoff Festival...

Astronauts Joe Acaba, Randy Bresnik, Satoshi Furukawa Naoko Yamazaki, Kevin Ford, Timothy Kopra, and Hans Schlegel will chat with the public and sign autographs from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 26 in the RE/MAX and NASA tents.

An hour-by-hour schedule is now available on Sightings.

Acaba and Bresnik joined NASA this year after completing training as members of the newest astronaut class. Furukawa and Yamazaki, also rookie astronauts, represent the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency.

Ford trains and works space missions as a Space Shuttle and International Space Station CAPCOM, or spacecraft communicator, in the Mission Control Center. Austin-born Kopra works in the Space Station Branch of the Astronaut Office. Schlegel, from the European Space Agency, served as a payload specialist on STS-55 aboard Space Shuttle Columbia in 1993 and is now assigned to the STS-122 crew.

Rainy...but ok...Wasn't really much of an open house..a few of the buildings were open..the rain kinda put a damper on some things but the astronauts did sign..We got signatures from 5 out of the 7 that were there.

All times are CT (US)
