Sparky “blasted” off two bucket list items after visiting NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and experiencing Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Sparky got to explore NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, NASA’s launch center, astronaut hall of fame and museum where you can explore Space Shuttle Atlantis! Then, Sparky headed to Alabama to have fun at Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Space Camp launched in 1982 to inspire and motivate young people from around the country to join the ranks of space pioneers who persevere to push the boundaries of human exploration. Trainee alumni have gone on to become astronauts, engineers and scientists!
Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish between his birthday and October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
