Scouts, here is your chance to help the Troop pilot an atomic powered space craft and launch it toward Mars. No, really! We’re also going to the moon. Well, we’re at least heading for Houston!

There will be no Tranquility at our Base when we land Saturday night at Space Center Houston for a accelerated Space Exploration Merit Badge workshop and an amazing overnight under the artificial stars and real, actual, Space Craft!
