Well, yeah. It's totally how Kathryn Fairly knew all about Andie Bergstrom, the first female shuttle pilot.

Still is a club you can join, just much harder to find. There was a Young Astronauts Club that met in the Challenger Space Center in Arizona betwen 2001 and 2003 at least...

I would love to lead a group like that.
I think I am going to work on a grant for space sciences in the summer at least.

Huh, those novels actually sound like something I really would have enjoyed when I was younger! Shame they stopped publishing them.
