Spacefest 2014

Pasadena, CA

It's my favorite weekend of the year! It's a chance to see lots of old friends in science, to meet new idols in spaceflight, and to reunite with new friends found through Spacefest. We are a unique breed who share a love of all things space. This year the event was held in Pasadena, which gave the event the chance to attract new attendees, and to give us a true LA experience. Many of us visited JPL ahead of time, and got the grand tour. I visit there often enough for Cassini activities, but this was the first time in a long time that I'd had an actual tour and got to see the cool stuff. A picture with a laughing Jim McDivitt is a favorite. I also got a picture with the crew of Last Man on the Moon, with Commander Eileen Collins, with Meteorite Man Geoff Notkin and with my super fun lunch gang. Once again, I love to see my friend, Apollo 15 commander Dave Scott. And the gang got to hang out at the cool patio of the Westin, post-banquet. A new treat this year, being so close to JPL, was to get a Voyager panel on the last day. Thanks to friends I got some pictures with Ed Stone and Charlie Kohlhase. There is so much to love about this event - thanks, Kim and Sally Poor!
