Ask them what channels they get with a dish that big.

 

THEN steal something from outer space.

I'm lying. NASA shit is hella cool. But it would be good to stop by Cold Stone for ice cream afterwards.

I thought it looked familiar. I use to live a few miles from there on the same base in Cali.

 

There is not much there. 40 miles to Barstow and nothing much else going on.

 

At least I think it is the same place. Looks like it.

dude, that was the coolest shit ever, lemme try to explain everything i can while i was there

 

first i found out there is 10 planets, pluto is a dwarf planet but still a planet. < i got a highschool diploma and some credits, never knew there was 10 planets, im so tripping out cause of this

 

they've got like 24 satellites there, that can pick up from .010th of a watt all the way up to 400,000,000+ watts

 

they listen to everything in space, we learned how they communicate with every NASA program and space shuttle/craft etc in space

 

we went to the mission control room, and they were working with the thing rolling around mars right now

 

they taught us about how all the little rovers work and stuff

 

shit took me back to like grade school, it was fucking awesome.

 

it was the best 2 hour tour i've taken. we went with a group of boyscouts, and the lady was like "we have special guests today, the other group are u.s soldiers!"

 

you look over and everyone has a cain, leg brace or crutches lol. all wounded soldiers from iraq, that's the unit i'm in now

 

kinda funny, made me chuckle cause our group is always drugged out, and it was like something off family guy. i dunno guess you had to be there,

 

still the best tour, wish i would've took my camera, i'll post more stuf in a minute

One of the De-Commisioned Antenna's are ran by a High School now, they got permission to utilize and own it since they were going to tear it down, so now the highschools can study deep space.

 

they even found a small watt of communication that nasa couldn't find

it's crazy, the guys there wear their mission patches like soldiers and airmen wear theirs

 

 

it wasn't really work related, everyone wanted to take a trip so our 1SG set up a trip here. next time we're going to primm/vegas. it was something to do since it was friday and we all hate working
