When I was a kid, during Nickelodeon’s golden age, they used to always air these commercials for space camp. Like any reasonable 9-year-old, I desperately wanted to go. Alas, it was not meant to be. Cuz, you guys, after reading 172 Hours On The Moon by Johan Harstad translated by Tara F. Chace, I am convinced that space is sinister, so maybe not going to space camp is a blessing.

Jen (A Book and a Latte) I tried starting this one and had to put it down. After working for NASA I just couldn't swallow the storyline. That board meeting... yeah.. I stopped there. I'll probably pick it back up and try again later. And BTW, I was a space camp nerd... and went multiple summers (thanks grandparents!), SO MUCH FUN!

Jen, I live forever in envy of your space camp experience.
