AstroNut

were the first kids in space !

100 cosmic kids from the Ontario Special Olympics and the AstroNuts kids space club launched on September 30 2017 from Goderich Ontario in a space weather balloon to a record altitude of 116,000 feet…their DNA ! 

...their individual DNA was recovered with the assistance of a search and rescuse boat from the middle of Lake Erie and then each individual DNA swab was then attached to a special certificate and then presented to each space travelling cosmic-kid ... 

...that certificate is meant to be an inspirational reminder to each of them that even on their most challenging of days, they know that if they can 

“make it in space, then they can make it anywhere!” 


the AstroNuts Space Odyssey 

was an epic success!

September 30th 2017...
