             Welcome to "Hartflame Productions"                          

Hello and welcome to my website. If you are interested in booking a science show, please email Hartflame@aol.com for details or see the "education" section of this website.   "Space, Science and Other Things."

Space Show - Space, Science and Other Things, Get ready for some extreme fun...chemistry/physics show which will fill the room with magic, music, laughter, experiments, sparks of electricity and aliens for a live space show which will illustrate the effects of science in the real world while captivating the audience.

On 12 Mar 2010, I had the special opportunity to meet and shake hands with my HEROES, the Legends of Aerospace (Neil Armstrong- first man to walk on the moon, Gene Cernan - the last man to walk on the moon, Jim Lovell- Apollo 13, Steve Richie- Vietnam Ace, and Bob Gilliland-first to fly the SR-71, the Blackbird.) Imagine an hour of listening to their stories and hanging on to their every word, imaging that you were right there with them on their dangerous journeys. Gene Cernan and BG Richie signed my Space Show book. I will treasure the book forever. It doesn't get any better than that. When Gene Cernan said that we should try and get the children today motivated about space, a big smile came on my face since that is exactly what I do with my space show. General Kevin Chilton, USAF, who completed three space missions with two of them in the Endeavor signed my book: "Sandra, Thank you for this wonderful book and your dedicated efforts to inspire our youth...who of course are our future!! Warmest Regards, Kevin Chilton, Gen. USAF, NASA Astronaut STS 49, 59, & 76."  I look forward to my next show knowing that I am inspiring the children of tomorrow.

Favorite Links for Cool Science Music

“Adventures in Space" song by Greg & Steve to act out being astronauts * Note - This is a great song to finish the show. The smaller children love it since the song requires them to get out of their seats and move around acting as if they were in space. You will need a large area for them to move.     http://www.allegro-music.com/gregsteve.asp

“MusicSpace” celebrates music that is written for space exploration. Or is about space exploration. Or is played in space. Or makes you feel like you are in space. Or is actually from space.    http://www.hobbyspace.com/Music/index.html#NASAMusic
