To Dean Woo at CPP for his support and helping to find money as well
To Sarah Quasny at JSC for picking us/ supporting us and playing with us!

ISS Swimming Pool

Then we saw the pool with the entire ISS assembled in it - This is the biggest indoor pool in the world

Super VIP tour my our NASA mentor got us on the floor of Mission Control

Our tour was amazing and really special. They are in constant communication here with the ISS - Unfortunately all the folks on the ISS went to sleep already.

Final team in Houston



Brice Colton - Wish you were here...

Brice was an invaluable member of the team from the start all the way through - In the end he could not miss the time from his job so he did not go to Houston. Here he is in the original team photo

Testing and getting Final Check-Offs

Ours was the most prepared of any - but still had some strapping issues and they had to verify that the bolt

s were tightened down precisely - Good job Andrew

Martin and Andrew arrive to JSC Ellington Field to set-up


All ready for testing and Andrew throwing some darts


Prototype framed up and almost ready to go


Government is back up!!!

So we will be going one week later from the 8-15th
Too bad as everyone was hoping it would be during winter break from school

Government is Shutdown

Flight is delayed until further notice.....bummer
