Alyssa Carson has been preparing to rocket into space since she was a toddler. Billed as the youngest astronaut in training, the 21-year-old is blazing her own trail in a quest to be among the first humans to land on Mars.

As a kid she went to every Space Camp available (even traveling overseas) and completed the NASA Passport to Explore Space Program, visiting all 14 U.S. space centers.

She was on a NASA panel for the Mars Exploration Rovers (MERs) mission, was selected as one of seven ambassadors for Mars One, a privately funded effort to establish a human colony on Mars, and was featured in the 2017 Netflix Documentary, "The Mars Generation."

She's currently an undergraduate studying astrobiology at the Florida Institute of Technology focused on her big goal of seeing the red planet in person.

While on Earth, Alyssa is also on a mission to inspire young people to get excited about space and the study of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM). She shares her vision for the Mars Generation in speeches all over the world, including Tedx talks. And she comments frequently on the latest advancements and space discoveries to her more than 525,000 followers on Instagram.

At Blast Off Back-to-School, Alyssa will share her extraordinary experiences and advice with Orange County students thanks to media partners Spotlight Schools, The Event-News Enterprise and The Sun Newspapers.

Alyssa will explain how the future of the space economy is as vast as the universe. The emergence of space tourism, plans to return to the moon, and new efforts to explore, and someday visit, Mars mean more opportunities for today's kids to become tomorrow's leaders in this expanding field.

Alyssa will also do a Q&A session with the audience. And the first 100 kids to get tickets will get a free copy of Alyssa's book, "So you want to be an Astronaut" that she will sign that evening.  

Don't miss out on this stellar event sure to leave children reaching for the stars and beyond.
