Star Rangers

Khal Shariff, CEO of Project Whitecard, is close to unveiling an ultimate Kickstarter. It's called Star Rangers: Mission Space, and dovetails off of his educational game, made officially with NASA content.
SR:MS will fund 8 students to go to astronaut training as part of Dr. Jason Reimuller's Project Possum program and through Embry Riddle University.
As you'll see in the sneak peak, they'll  put members worldwide through a STEM challenge, and then select 4 and finally 1 to fly a spacecraft at a high enough altitude to conduct the experiment on noctilucent clouds: citizen science at it's finest!
