NASA is offering a chance to see behind the scenes activity at the Space Center Houston location. This is a never before offered opportunity. They are going to allow a family of four to come and see what actually goes on at their space centers during a two-day trip. They will cover the airfare and the hotel accommodations as well. This is in conjunction with the release of the new book by Frank Cottrell Boyce called Cosmic.

Cosmic is a wonderful book about a 12 year old boy named Liam. He experiences the thrill of space exploration and takes the reader along for the trip.

This contest is open to all residences of the United States that are between the ages of 8 and 14 as of January 21, 2010. All entries must be submitted by February 23, 2010. So, quickly get those entries in.
