Daniel always knew he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and become an astronaut in the Earth Space Alliance. The trouble was, Daniel was not very patient. He had six more years of school...plus five at university and then, of course, astronaut training. That would take another year or more. More than eleven years of waiting! Daniel wanted to go to space now. So when he finds out that his youngest brother has already been to space, his patience wears out.Matt Phillips brings his unique background as a retired naval officer and former ship captain to science-fiction storytelling with a realistic and exciting flair. With an enthusiastic perspective on driverless school buses, automated kitchens, and space exploration, his stories are perfect for kids who dream about space travel or for anyone who wonders what the world will be like when our children have grandkids of their own.
