Marshall Rockets: "Hammac-Owens, Toki" <Toki.Hammac-Owens@msfc.nasa.gov>
Well, we had our conference and your rockets were quite the hit!
We all took pictures, I haven't had a chance to upload all of them yet, but you can see a few of my horrible pictures here:
I'll send you links once we get the full set uploaded; some really good ones to come. I'm just trying to catch up on all the mail and more importantly to send you guys a big thank you!
The only major hitch we had was with the boom box. While we were able to get it out of the truck onto the loading dock, it was too tall to get out of the loading dock so we didn't get to use it. :-(
Anyways, we'd like to borrow them again next year for the week of September 25-29, 2006, again at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in DC.
Here's the changes we'd like to make for next year (and feel free to offer your suggestions).
- Delete command module; the one we had didn't seem to fit well with the other models.
- Delete boom box -- loading dock troubles
- Add 1/10th scale Saturn V. That will top things off nicely!
Also, we'd very much like to have your technicians come up for the assembly and disassembly.
