After exploding a science experiment and getting expelled, a 16-year old student and her twin sister got sponsored to go to space camp by a NASA veteran. Thanks to the lunacy of mindless governmental and public school bureaucracy and protocol, the student was expelled primarily because of her brilliance. Luckily for her, the explosion and the expulsion put her in the sights of a man who had had a similar experience.
