A MacEwan University science student has launched an online campaign to win a spot at space camp.

Christopher Clarke, 18, is looking for votes on his Facebook page called "Black Kid in Pyjamas."

"The two Canadian contestants with the most amount of votes, they will be selected to go to the space camp," he said.

"And then they'll be put through astronaut training and then they'll be reviewed by a board of reviewers and then the one who's the best suited will make the cut and go to space."
