    Epub Stephen Harrigan ä ä Challenger Park eBook ß challenger kindle, park epub, Challenger Park eBookI was born the year an American first traveled into space and I grew up calculating everybody's coolness by how close they were to NASA My mother had been Alan Shepard's daughter's synchronized swimming coach middling cool but my father worked on the systems leading up to the Apollo program which sent his coolness quotient to the moon My friends and I drank Tang and used pens that could write upside down because that's what the astronauts did Little boys and big ones too dreamed of colonies on Mars by the early 21st century But of course a funny thing happened on the way to the final frontier Those Apollo missions started to feel a little mundane no aliens up there?
