Origin Story:

I grew up a Space Brat in 1960s Brevard County, Florida. Of course, there was Wally Schirra and the whole turtle joke that became a part of our culture. A few years back I created a Facebook page called The Kids of Apollo for those like me -- many the children of aerospace workers at KSC -- who were raised on Brevard County beaches and space lore. Turtle jokes surface regularly on our Kids of Apollo page.
