If I were you, truthfully, I'd go anyways. To be where Bill Clinton and Dean Kamen were in the same room together would be amazing!
Remember also that they didn't film it there either. Remember, they talked about filming in Dean's hangar?

Not that I've heard. Folks at the kickoff in Manchester will see the NASA feed like everybody else, and then will have the opportunity to go down to the full competition field.

Uh... Dean will definitely be in NH... it's where he lives AND there's still a Manchester kickoff event...

Who knows who will be there?! Just because it's pre-recorded doesn't mean they won't show up for the fun of it! I know I'll be in Manchester.

Re: Kickoff 2012- Dean Kamen & National Luminaries

This is a seriously impressive list of speakers from politicians to scientists to pop culture figures. I would have been happy with just Charlie Bolden, but two former presidents, plus Aneesh Chopra and Colbert is pretty cool.

2.: a body that gives light; especially : one of the celestial bodies
One of the celestial bodies = planets = speherical = balls as game piece


That or famous people will be using our robots to race eachother

It's the perfect word for this event and the depth and breadth of the guest list.

It also highlights the growth of the program and its impact.

Love the word.

There has to be a point at which partisanship stops and union for the common good begins.

I concur. Regardless of political views we should be excited we have former presidents willing and wanting to promote activities like FIRST. And to be fair, I don't see the current President on the guest list...

Who - do - you see as a White House representative and why would that be significant for FRC? I think that is pretty cool.

Well said, Mr. Taylor. Well said.

Did you watch i.am.FIRST: Science is Rock and Roll? President Obama's message was the start of the show. He absolutely supports FIRST.

I agree with the above statements - a former president is supporting FIRST. Whether we like them or not shouldn't matter- obviously, people know who THEY are, and they want people to know what FIRST is. It's a win for all of us!

I don't disagree; any POTUS is fantastic for FIRST. However, I wish George W. had given FIRST and its goals more support when he was in office, rather than after the fact. I just think that anything coming from him would be rather insincere.

I think he would remember meeting MOE. There are some photos here in CD of him meeting members of the team at the White House. I think I also remember something about a chandelier...
