I think the funniest part is the realization that The Onion actually fact checks their work, given that Deborah Barnhart, Space Camp's CEO, got a mention!

And, Dr. Deborah Barnhart, the center's CEO, believes exposure from the movie, "A Smile as Big as the Moon," will drive up the number of Space Camp bookings.
"I hope next month, we can take your breath away," Barnhart said Wednesday at a meeting of the Alabama Space Science Exhibit Commission's executive committee.
"It's perfection," Barnhart said of the movie. "I know I'm biased, (but) it's right on target. It's beautifully told and the characters are engaging and well developed."
The center's goal is to sign up 10,000 trainees in the 2012 fiscal year for its most lucrative weeklong Space Camp programs: Space Camp, Space Academy, Advanced Space Academy and Aviation Challenge, and the 12-day Advanced Academy and Mach 3 programs.
"We've booked more than half our goal," with 5,346 people registering or making reservations for the camps so far, Barnhart said.
In the scene, Corbett and Jessy Schram, who plays teacher Robynn McKinney, who teams up with Kersjes, meet Cynthia Watros, who portrays Space Camp Director Deborah Barnhart.
Barnhart was the Space Camp director at the time of the special camp and is now CEO of the space center.
"It's a real Hallmark story," said Dr. Deborah Barnhart, the space center's CEO who was the director of Space Camp at the time of the special camp. "I'm thrilled about the authenticity and fidelity of the story."
Barnhart is also excited about the exposure the film will bring to the space center and the city.
Cynthia Watros, who has appeared in numerous TV series including "Lost," "The Drew Carey Show" and "Titus," will play Barnhart.
