I was able to participate at EAA's Kidventure during the Airventure Airshow. Kidventure was set up to give kids a hands on learning expirence of aircraft building and flying. There were all kinds of people from all over the world that came through. There were some notable highlights. There was a astronaut that was just passing through. He was looking at my booth, and I asked him if he was involved in NASA in some way. He said, "Yes, I have been to the International Space Station twice." His name is Scot Horowitz. He did climb into my Mercury capsule, so I can now say that a real astronaut has sat in my capsule. A 2nd highlight was when the Directors of the NTSB stopped by my booth and took a look at my capsule. Also, the director of the FAA stopped and looked at my capsule.
