Hopefully there will be a reprise of the X-15 element — last year's was just superb! Would love to hear Joe Engle et al again.

Outstanding news. I was worried there would be no 2018 edition.

On sale date has been set for Feb. 14 at noon MST. Tickets go fast.

I expect to sell at least 60 Universal tickets within the first 60 to 90 minutes. Astronaut sponsorship will be available. Send us an email if you're interested.

The Galactic Package includes the Astronauts Lunch, according to the tickets page. Is this correct? Or it should be the Speaker Lunch instead?

Tickets sales began today at noon (Mountain Standard Time). From Spacefest:
Universal tickets go fast. For best seating opportunities at the banquet and luncheon, get your order in as quickly as you can.

We had a minor glitch with the online ordering of 4-Day passes ("Admit- All 4 Days") earlier today, but that has now been fixed. If you were trying to order a 4-Day pass, but couldn't, please try again.

I am excited to be going to this SpaceFest as it is my first one to be at. Astronauts and space artists, what a great combination!

If you need something signed and cannot make the event I will be handling any orders for people who cannot make it.

I have done this for most of the past events and glad to help out anyone that I can. I have already confirmed this with Sally and Al.

Please check past years' Spacefest reports to see the positive reviews that I have received for my services.

Time for my annual Steve Gruber recommendation.

Steve has been a great help to enthusiasts, and to us at Spacefest since nearly day one. His organizational skills are impeccable — and to see him in action is a site to behold. As honest as the day is long, you can trust you item(s) to Steve.

I'll find him a place to store items during the day that's safe and non accessible to the public and he and I keep an eye on the items as well.

Thanks for your help to the community and us at Spacefest Steve!

Another astronaut coming to Spacefest! Dr. Anna Fisher, STS-51A and the first mother in space, will be attending! I don't know about y'all, but I'm totally excited about this.
