Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The action is on the page, on your device, and out of this world! This multiplatform series is part sci-fi, part eco-mystery, all action-adventure. The entire future of our planet will soon be in the hands of four kids. Sure, they'll be the best in the world . . . but can they save the world? Earth is about to go dark. Without a new power source, life as we know it will be toast. A global competition is under way to determine who will join the secret mission that might just save us all. The Voyagers will venture to the far reaches of space, farther than anyone's ever gone before, and they must be prepared to face anything. But first the Voyagers team needs to be chosen. Project Alpha is a competition of physical challenges, mental puzzles, and political alliances. The battle is fierce, and only four will make the cut. . . . Do you have what it takes to be a Voyager? Find out at VoyagersHQ.com.

Eight boys and girls compete for a spot on the space voyage that will search for a source to solve Earth's energy crisis.

Horn Book Review

In this new multiplatform collaborative series, a group of twelve-year-olds in the not-so-distant future are chosen for a deep-space mission to retrieve an alternate clean fuel source that will save humankind from extinction. This series has it all: space travel, alien encounters, a diverse group of characters, and timely subject matter. Fans of The 39 Clues will devour these exciting sci-fi adventure stories.
