Young Explorers Club

A kind of fun series on National Geographic’s Adventure
site. The editors asked kids from around the country to send a letter describing their ultimate
expedition. The kids’ replies are pretty funny. One kids wants to
fly to the sun in a “a white X4
rocket with an exterior made from a mixture of polycarbonate and steel.” Creative…and fairly technical, if somewhat
hard to imagine. Another would go to the
center of the earth…also
clever, although one wonders how many times she has seen The
. The group pictured here would go to the cold planet of Pluto, perhaps achievable…and one is grateful they
will bring along their digital cameras.

Anyway, cute, humorous. Check it out.
