Desperate to follow in the footsteps of his absent astronaut father, 13-year-old Jimmy’s dreams come true when he wins one of five opportunities to compete for a scholarship to Space Camp. When he gets to the Space Center, Jimmy finds himself working alongside genius kid candidates from all over the world, instantly impressing them with his vast knowledge of space. He even breezes through the physical training, particularly on the machines that make all the other first-timers puke. But when Jimmy discovers that astronauts in the International Space Station are about to run out of air, he assembles the young team, motivating them to work around the clock to find a solution. As time is running out, this ragtag group of space warriors realize that by teaching the astronauts how to build a robot from spare parts, reduce their body temperatures enough to achieve a state of suspended animation, and remote pilot empty space suits in order to transfer oxygen canisters… they might just save the day!
