Rebecca Moesta and Kevin J. Anderson appeared at the newly reopened Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, California at a launch party for the new Star Challengers series. This educational center, space museum, and Challenger Learning Center is an extensive complex on the site where some of the original Apollo Program work was done.
June Scobee Rodgers (founder of the Challenger Centers for Space Science Education) was the keynote speaker at the Writers of the Future ceremonies, and Dan Barstow (Challenger Center president) was a guest presenter. It was a great opportunity for Kevin and Jenniver, along with June and Dan, to attend the grand opening of the Columbia Memorial Space Center; by special arrangement with Catalyst Press, they presented Star Challengers: Moonbase Crisis, the first time the books were offered for sale to the general public.
Before the official signing began, Rebecca and Kevin took a tour of the center, seeing the exhibits and the operational Challenger Learning Center.
