Space Cadet is also a book written by Robert Heinlein. It was published in 1948. The book takes place in the year 2075 and follows Matt Dodson and his peers through their entry and first year in the Solar Patrol. The Solar Patrol is a military unit that polices space and keeps the peace. In this book, there is life on many of the planets in our solar system. The military aspect of the book is very much like Starship Troopers, but they are very different books. This book is centered more on the subjects of peace, understanding, and honor.

I finished the book last night and quite enjoyed it, but then again, I like reading Heinlein's work. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how correct his science was since I'm not very good at it myself. However, he correctly predicted cel phones.
