Here is the response from my Congressman (TX)

Mr Illini_Fan

Thanks for contacting me regarding tickets to the Kennedy Space Center. I was curious if you were requesting tickets for a NASA launch or just to get into the Kennedy Space Center. If you were just wanting entrance passes to tour the Space Center, you can purchase those on your own. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

I e-mailed all of our representatives last November for tickets in January. I never received a response. I'm curious to see if anyone in NC had better luck that I.

Well dang. I am in TX too so I guess I should not bother. Did you contact Kay Bailey Hutchison's office? Since up for Gov I was wondering if they would "dig harder" to accommodate.

I haven't contacted either Senator -- this was Rep Michael Burgess' office. I did respond to his staff member with some of the very specific details that others had posted. We shall see if I get a response back.

You should try it, just because I was told "No" doesn't mean you will be. If you do have success, could you let me know?

tom

edit -- I just noticed your city, I think you have Rep Burgess as well, so it would be really interesting if you had success and I didn't

My sister got some last year from our Congressman (John Shadegg, AZ 3rd district).

She had sent the email quite a few months before our trip and then resent it about 60 days out and got a reply pretty quickly after that.

Illini_fan, I'm betting the staff assistant wasn't aware that they could give you regular admission tickets.

You might be right, I haven't heard back on my follow-up request, so hopefully the staff member is doing some research. I'll give it a couple of days and try again.

It seems that everyone goes through their House member and not their Senate member. Any reason for that?

I think because we were just told to "ask your congressman".

Maybe Senators are just too to deal with their constituents.

Really, probably because your congressman represents a smaller group of people (for most states), and this type of request would just be more easily handled through them.

Update: The staff member indicated she emailed the Congressional liaison at NASA about the passes.

I'll post another update when I hear back.

Update on my attempt to get tickets. This was received from my congressman's office this morning.

Mr Illini_Fan

I heard back from our NASA Congressional liaison and to submit a request I need the date you would like to tour the Kennedy Space Center. She did warn me that that there are very few available passes, so the sooner I submit it the better. Hopefully we can get this worked out.....

Staff Asst


I promptly replied with the date we are interested in -- hopefully it will work out.
