Post Traveling to Perth WA
I will be traveling to Perth AU on the 18th and leaving the 10th of November. Would love to meet up with some local cachers during my visit. Also, wondering if anyone will be hosting a "Geocaching Rockets into Space" event for the 6th or equivalent time in Perth or nearby?

I don't live in that part of Oz but was wondering about this rocket business. Thought well they launch rockets from Florida so looked up events there & found GC49VW3. Launching from Kazakhstan! Back in the US, back in the US, back in the USSR.

This was mentioned in the last Groundspeak newsletter.

You don’t read the words, “We’re going to space!” very often. So, how about we soak up the joy of reading those words once more? Let’s add a little pizzazz and shout it by using all capital letters: “WE’RE GOING TO SPACE!” Yeah! A Geocaching Travel Bug® is hitching a ride with astronaut Rick Mastracchio straight to the International Space Station. The mission is currently scheduled to launch from Kazakhstan at 4:08 GMT on November 7, which is 5:08 a.m. in Berlin and November 6 at 8:08 p.m. in Los Angeles. (Convert to your time here.)

Rick will live aboard the ISS for 6 months. He plans to use the Travel Bug as a tool to teach students on Earth, in his home state of Connecticut, about geography and science. He’ll also earn the Solar System’s most elusive smiley and find the International Space Station geocache.

We’ll be following Rick the whole way, beginning at liftoff. Ready for some more pizzazz? Geocaching HQ will issue a Geocaching in Space souvenir to those who attend Event Caches during the launch. You can watch the launch live online or check out the recording later to celebrate the geocaching community’s spirit of exploration.

Find out answers to frequently asked questions, learn everything you need to know about hosting a Geocaching in Space event and get continuously updated launch information at the Geocaching in Space Event Center.

All Event Caches must be submitted at least two weeks before the scheduled launch date of November 6.
