Lonestar Flight Museum, 11551 Aerospace Ave.,
Houston, TX77034


From the organizer:

Use our growing collection of space artifacts – including an original Space Shuttle Trainer flight simulator, the Crew Compartment Trainer, a Mars rover prototype, and an exploratory Mars humanoid rover – to study past NASA missions, especially the Shuttle Transfer System, and astronauts. Design and build a model off-Earth planetary base, image how we can explore the unknown parts of our solar system, and build a model or a historic NASA rocket. This is a two-day class; both day are required for completion.

Price: $60 per Scout. ($15 parent museum admission available)

Requirements fulfilled: 1, 2, 3*, 4a-d, 5ac, 6a, 7a-d, 8. Because LSFM is in restricted air space, we cannot launch model rockets.  To complete requirement 3, we will do the alternate of building a scale model of a NASA rocket system. Full completion of badge, no outside work required.
