In 1986, the families of the astronauts killed aboard the Challenger Space Shuttle founded the Challenger Center for Space Science Education. As part of its mission to engage students in science and math education, the Challenger Center is partnering with Catalyst Game Labs to publish a series of young adult science fiction novels, as well as a cooperative card game. The first book in the Star Challengers series is Moonbase Crisis, which other than a little bit of time travel, is described by Catalyst as containing only real feasible technology checked by NASA scientists. The card game and first three hardcover books should be available for the holiday gift season.
