Enter for a chance to win!

  • This sounds awesome! I’ve always wanted to go to space camp 🙂

  • Dck

    This is the best contest ever! I really, really, really, want it all!!! Can’t wait for the book regardless.

  • Amba

    Space camp. Closest to the moon I’ll ever get!

  • Angela Mason

    So Very Cool! Thank you so very kindly for the opportunity of a lifetime!

  • Cathleen Grey

    So very cool! Thanks for such an opportunity. I look forward to your new book 🙂

  • Anne Meisel

    Super duper paratrooper amazing!!! I watch ISS as often as possible. Have tried making contact via 2meter radio with no avail. Space Rocks!

  • Hippiechick2

    O.M.G…. I can’t believe THIS giveaway!! I’m freaking out *gasp…hyperventilating. I don’t even have to hesitate who I would take to space camp with me; my mum! Ever since I was old enough to understand words, she has talked frequently about being one of the 1st passengers on a commercial flight to another planet. She really truly wants to go. She loves space. We always watched all the launches when we lived in Miami. She now resides in Houston and was very disappointed when the program closed down. She traveled to from Houston to Florida in her 70’s to go to a launch and got bleacher seats! Going to space is not going to happen in her lifetime, which is sadly unfortunate because she’s a spry “older person”. However this would blow her mind if I took her to space camp in celebration of her 90th birthday. She would say “It’s as good as going to the moon!”

    I’d have fun, too!

  • Jazzlyn Jaramillo

  • ArroganceIsNotAVirtue

    This gets my beenie propellor spinning at light Speed! Although I prefer the moniker Geek vice nerd, this is the most nerdest thing I have ever wanted to do. Always envied those that got to go. This would be so cool! Heck, it would be beyond cool! 🙂

  • Kim Naumann

    My son would actually do this with me!

  • Frida

    I raised money to buy 120 classroom editions of The Martian and my students loved it! I’m looking forward to expanding the unit throughout the next school year. Attending adult space camp would add so much depth to their engagement. Plus, I would absolutely love it! Woohoo! What an amazing opportunity – thank you for offering it.

    • Mary

      I am a 9th grade science educator and next year I’ll be collaborating with the ela teacher to do an interdisciplinary unit with the Martian! I love the adult text. I’m so excited he’s written another novel!

  • David S. Skipper

    I am a long time space enthusiast. Recently visited the John C. Stennis Space Center and saw a rocket engine that will be going to Mars on a engine test block.

    This would b an adventure of a lifetime!

  • Nebraska_Lady

    My husband everytime I turn around js watching the Martian. Its his all time favorite movie. It sometimes gets on my nerves because I like new movies not watching the same one over amd over and over unless its John Wayne or Purgatory but man does he love that movie.

  • Susan Lussier

    It would be awesome to win. Lets see what happens.

  • Carole Lewis

    A dream since the program began. I will be 75 in October, what a great way to celebrate.

  • foxyfifty

    cannot wait to read the book, and would really love to try space camp.

  • Paula Dolge Mullins

    What an amazing adventure this would be. I enjoy the beauty and technology that we have here on earth. How awesome would it be to learn about the vastness of outer space, not to mention how totally cool.

  • Shane Perdue

    As a teacher I have shared many space stories with my science classes. Their greatest interest; my eye witness Challenger story with the first teacher that was to go into space. All which occured when I was in fifth grade and long before the International Space Station, arriving on Mars and when Pluto was still a planet. Many many years later, imagine the excitement my students would gain knowing their crazy teacher went to space camp.

  • Maureen Moheit Blatz

    What a great education sweepstakes

  • ccd3511

    My Significant Other dreams of being one of the Mars Colonizers someday, this would be an amazing “practice” session for him!

  • Jeanne Robinette

    All I ever wanted to do as a child up into adulthood was become anything that had to do with space. I was told by a counselor that I could not go in to that field. Utah didn’t jave enough jobs to offer. Unfortunately, I believed him. I’m 60 year’s old now. I’m disabled now. At times I look into the sky and day dream of how wonderful life would have been as an astronaut or astronomer! I would give almost anything to go to Space camp!

  • Alice Benter

    My Grandson would love this, thank you for a chance to win.

  • Angel

    always wanted to be weightless

  • Carol Morrison

    Been a lifelong dream of my husband of 43 years!

  • Barbara Valcarcel

    My boyfriend loves the galaxies and all things science and math he would b thrilled at space camp me too

  • Sherri Hendrick McDaniel

    To Boldy Go!!! Pushing 60 years, would love to fulfill my space adventure for my bucket list.

  • Jeremy Lowe

    I grew up in the shadows of Cape Canaveral and distinctly remember watching launches as they arc into the void. What NASA has been able to do on relatively shoe-string budgets is amazing. Juno. Curiosity. Cassini . All amazing! Space exploration in the coming decades will be a joint effort between nations and the private sector. As an avid fan of all things space, a space camp experience would be a lifetime desire achieved.

  • Toni Smith Sauls

    I would love to go to space camp with my sister Becky !

  • Jenny Ford Penuel

    I would love to go to space camp!! It would be an experience of a lifetime and one that would certainly inspire my students as well!

  • Jake Hagelstein

    I wanted to go as a kid never got the chance so I would love to go now as a adult and take my wife or one of my buddies with me and with my 31st on Friday I hope that puts the odds ever in my favor lol

  • Cassandra Nedrow

    Space Camp was started the year I aged out of eligibility (which to this day makes me a little upset). I inherited a love of all things space related from my mom, who would make sure to watch every launch possible. What a kick would it be to take her as she is an even bigger fan of NASA than I am.

  • Erica Osborne

    wanted to do this since I was a child….then watched the movie “space camp” and thought “oh that could happen to me”…… I was such a space/nasa nerd!!

  • Leif Young

    I always remembered time is always limited somewhere when we use up too many resources… and how we must face forward never go back and fight for a better freedom for our future.

  • George Hooper

    Good luck to all contestants!

  • Jonathan Freeman

    I always wanted to go to Space camp as a kid but couldn’t save enough to money to go and even tried to become an Astronaut and jet fighter pilot but my height of 6’6 stopped me from pursuing that dream.

  • George Phillips

    What a awesome 2nd honeymoon this would be for the love of my life … Truely a experience we could share with grandchildren ( when we have some ) .. it would be a story passed down through generations

  • Stephen E Rabey

    My late father, USAF Col. D.W.Rabey, Jr. was Range Safety Officer from Gemeni 5 thru Apollo 16 at NASA and Patrick AFB, FL. I have a keen interest and unique experience with the space program.
    It had a profound impression on me.

  • Jessi Ann Schulte

    I must have watched space camp a million times as a kid. My poor toddler now has NASA printed all over his clothes. I would DIE to do this with my long suffering hubby!

  • Henry Z

    My wife and I retired from NASA Langley Research Center; so, we’d love to win this giveaway, especially the chance to attend the Adult Space Camp!

  • keepsmiling1228

    I would love to go! Still a kid at heart and love all things Sci-Fi and other worldly!!

  • Paul Wiley

    “This one time, at space camp…”

        • Ltp

          So long as you didn’t pull a ‘Howard Walowitz’! 😉

    • Angela Lutman

  • Dawn Sherwood

    I went 25 years ago as a high schooler – now I teach Earth Science and would love to go back and get a different perspective! I even know which other teacher would kill for the chance to go with me!!!!

  • Kathi Edwards

    I would go into space in a heartbeat…my dad was literally a rocket scientist and I was raised with the space program. I’m a space geek as a result, and though I tried to go into a science career as a result, math killed that idea! My adult son and I have talked about doing adult Space Camp together…to win a trip would be AWESOME!

  • Brenda Gagnon

    Finally something awesome for adults! Can’t wait for the announcement telling me I won!! (a little positive thinking can’t hurt) LOL

  • John Thomas

    this sounds rad!….good luck dudes and dude ets

  • Derek Allen
  • Jeff Gough

    My son would love to go here, he is autistic but very high functioning and because of Dr.bills and all his medications we have never really been able to take him many places in the 27yrs we have been blessed with him and this would really make up for some of that as he is really into space and tech. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  • Pam McMahon

    This would be great! Since my father worked for NASA and worked on all the shuttles! And was with NASA since 1960

  • Diane Tompkins Usher

    I loved Space Camp, I did it when they first allowed adults back in the late 80’s and I’d love to do it again. Though this time I’d pass on the bunks (too short) and get a hotel room.

  • JimMcDade

    This would be so nice for our wedding anniversary.

    As a child I always wanted to go to Space Camp, but financially that was impossible….

    Standing 4’11” and wearing clothes in the kids, not juniors, section. This Mom is a space saver, literally. Raised viewing the NASA channel back when I was younger. Began a lifetime of learning about space and what that word really means. Adult Space Camp would be an experience I can take full advantage of. Good luck to everyone.

  • Travis Lee Wilbur

    This would be a shattered childhood dream come true.

  • Amber Rose Yates

    I attended Space Camp as a gradeschooler thanks to the generosity of some wonderful people. It is a memory I cherish so deeply. My partner has heard me gush and is immensely jealous, as it was a childhood fantasy of his to go. I’d love to be able to share this experience with him!

  • Susan Eggert

    About 20 years ago I helped send my niece to Space Camp in Alabama and she had a remarkable experience which I enjoyed vicariously. I would love the opportunity to go myself, at age 63 going on 64. I can remember watching the television coverage of our first space flights and especially the Moon Walk in 1969….skipped school that day to watch!

  • Wisty Cruz

    Lord I hope I win, how cool would it be for a math teacher to win this?

  • Scott Osborne

    And Another comedian shows their colors….at least in space no one can hear you tell bad movie lines…….( see that’s how you do it)😅😅📡🎛🚀

    I so wanted to go to space camp when I was a kid, but my family couldn’t afford it. I love that they have an adult version; it would be so awesome to be able to go do that.

  • Vanessa Chrisman

    I am interested in science fiction and going to Mars.

  • Katelynn Reeder

    Absolutely love following the nerdist and listing to the podcasts! As a science teacher and biologist, Andy Weir’s books are some of my favorites and have inspired some interesting science projects at my school. it would be amazing to go to space camp and bring back the experience to my students.

  • Laura

    Is it required to post something self serving

  • Larry Thompson

    My dream of becoming an astronaut was curtailed at an early age by things beyond human control. Some dreams you never get over. My body may be Earth bound but my mind will forever live in the stars.

  • Elaine Vario
