Untitled[edit]

Sounds excessively advert-like. Needs wikification.

Who Broke This??[edit]

I don't know why, but there is open code at the bottom of the page!! Someone PLEASE clean this up!

Source of info[edit]

Need a source of information besides Disney's promotional stuff. The simulator is, among other things, a centrifuge to simulate g-forces of escaping a gravity well.

I am going to give it some thought. Anyone have suggestions?

weird problem[edit]

When I try to bold the introduction Mission:SPACE it weirds out the paragraph, making it italics and bold in odd places. Any idea why? - DavidWBrooks 00:02, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The combination of italics on the "g" (as in gravity force) with another apostrophe was the culprit, making the system think the whole sentence was supposed to be italics. Changing the g to bold cleared the problem and then the system allowed the bold earlier in the sentence. The wikilink to Gee also cleared up the problem by putting the wiki codes for italics or bold inside the brackets.

After sleeping on it, I decided that "g-forces" was better than "g's" or "gees" anyway. This also avoids the question of what is the plural of a single letter abbreviation. Should it be "gs" instead of "g's" or is that too confusing to the reader?

Merger of Mission: SPACE with Mission: Space[edit]

Copied from Talk:Mission: Space

The article titled Mission: SPACE has been replaced with a redirect to here. I think that the final project could profit from merging the two articles. -- WCFrancis 01:41, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I just checked and both HP and Disney web sites use the "Mission: SPACE" format of "space" being all caps. Shouldn't the redirect go from this article title to that one? I didn't know this was here until the redirect was put in. --WCFrancis 01:46, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I just completed combining the two articles. I have used the Disney format. Should this be moved to Mission: SPACE and Mission: Space be replaced with a redirect? --WCFrancis 03:15, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
If Mission: SPACE is the way Disney knows it as, then that's what the article should be, as Disney is more than likely to use its official name. I'm going to move it to Mission: SPACE. --Evanwohrman 22:16, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)
EDIT: It can't be moved. --Evanwohrman 22:17, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)
Same with Tokyo Disneyland Park. It should be moved to Tokyo Disneyland to fit the naming scheme with other Disney parks and it's sister Tokyo DisneySea, but it won't let me. :(--Speedway 19:44, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)

Copied article back to here (i.e. Mission: SPACE} and put redirect on Mission: Space. --WCFrancis 18:23, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)

All I have to say is.... Thank you! :) LordBleen 04:04, 23 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Sponsorship[edit]

Hewlett Packard's teaming with imagineers began in April 2000 and HP merged with Compaq as of May 2002. Statement that HP took over sponsorship when acquired Compaq appears to be incorrect. reference: [1]. --WCFrancis 02:39, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Press releases and newspaper articles from the time the ride was announced says Compaq was initially the sponsor of Mission: Space.
Reference: [2] -- Zpb52 04:16, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)
My reference above is from Hewlett Packard's press area on their web site, so no surprise that there is HP spin. To make it even more interesting, I found the claim that the hardware was designed and built by Environmental Tectonics Corporation, which has been incorporated in the article.
Reference: [3]. --WCFrancis 01:15, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Can't Find It[edit]

I came to this article and I clicked on the redirect and no article about Mission:Space came up. --12.222.121.79 04:20, 3 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

That is really strange... it redirects to itself. I'd ask Tregoweth, as they moved the article here... --Lyght 06:47, 3 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

4 year old[edit]

I just can't see how a four-year-old even get on the ride in the first place, let alone his parents allowing him to go when they knew what kind of ride it was. How was a 4-year-old tall enough??! It all does not make sense to me.--Martin925 01:50, 21 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Additions[edit]

I've been to Epcot and after you leave the Mission: SPACE, there is a place where you can play various games. There is an area where you can participate in a futuristic space race. There is an online version of the space race at http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/wdw/special/missionspace/gameDetail?id=SpaceRaceGameDetail&appRedirect=/wdw/special/missionspace/screenname?. I'm just wondering, should I add this to the page? Tiggs 16:29, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Information about the attraction's post-show area already is contained in the last paragraph of the section labeled The experience. —Whoville 03:08, 21 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

G-whiz?[edit]

There seems to be a contradiction about the g-forces exerted on this ride. The attraction facts on the page say 2g, but the ride mechanics state there is 2.4g. Which is correct? --Imhungry 17:28, 15 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I worked at this attraction, and know that the horizontal axis g-force exerted on riders is approximately 2.3 - 2.5G on the orange-ticket version. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 132.170.34.70 (talk) 04:58, 29 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Move[edit]

I believe Mission: SPACE should be moved to Mission: Space. See Wikipedia:Article titles#Standard English and trademarks. I quote: "Items in full or partial uppercase (such as Invader ZIM) should have standard capitalization (Invader Zim); however, if the name is ambiguous, and one meaning is usually capitalized, this is one possible method of disambiguation." Mission: Space is certainly not ambiguous, so we should follow standard capitalization and move the article. If no one objects to the move, I will carry it out. David1217 (talk) 23:43, 19 March 2012 (UTC) [reply]

As no one has objected to the move within a week, I am carrying out the name change. David1217 (talk) 02:19, 26 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Oops, I forgot that the name had been previously been changed from Mission: Space to Mission: SPACE, which makes my move proposal controversial. See my requested move below.

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the discussion was: page moved. JohnCD (talk) 20:00, 8 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Requested move[edit]

Mission: SPACEMission: Space – In Wikipedia:Article titles#Standard English and trademarks, it says, "Items in full or partial uppercase should have standard capitalization; however, if the name is ambiguous, and one meaning is usually capitalized, this is one possible method of disambiguation." Mission: Space is not ambiguous, because it redirects straight back to the article. Thoughts? David1217 (talk) 12:32, 26 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]
