"The Space Debris"
(A Classique Daily Doodle from 7/10/2011)
Young Brian Jennings, as brave a 9 year old as one could ever hope to meet, was out to prove that children have a place in space and could be counted on as valuable contributors to modern scientific research of our solar system.
Since the last 3 child astronauts all died terribly during their respective missions, a captivated home audience is watching Brian’s spacewalk unfold as he attempts to repair a signal wire that was broken on purpose so he could fix it in front of the world.
Just as the mission was going perfectly, an old spy satellite left over from the Cold War happens by and smacks him square on the head.
The space debris knocks him unconscious, and he floats off aimlessly before being sucked into the Sun live on international television (thankfully, his helmet-cam was not damaged by the impact of the debris).
His death leads to short-sighted sweeping legislation prohibiting astronauts younger than 11 going on solo space missions, causing the United States to fall perilously behind in child-based space research.
The nation never recovers, and is sold to Red China in an online auction.
