The Duckburg Space Exploration Academy is an organization based in Duckburg, seemingly connected to the military to some extent.
Headed by General McQuack and the scientists Professor Pintail, Professor Hermit and Doctor Drake, the Duckburg Space Exploration Academy was active in the early 1960's, creating and testing new forms of space rockets with which humans could explore the Solar System. In 1962, Professor Hermit became lost in space during such a test flight, having crash-landed on an unknown inhabitable planet, forcing the Academy to eventually send another pilot (none other than Donald Duck, accompanied by stowaways Huey, Dewey and Louie) to try and find out what had become of him.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Duckburg Space Exploration Academy appears in the 1963 comic story Beyond The Moon.
