The Duggars go to Space Camp! The stars of the popular TLC show "19 Kids and Counting" spent Sunday afternoon at the U.S. Space and Rocket center.

They took a break after helping Habitat for Humanity all week build homes for victims of April's tornadoes.

Jim Bob Duggar brought 17 of the 19 kids. He said his wife Michelle and two of their daughters are out of the country.

"For years, our kids have been wanting to go to the space and rocket center. They're very interested in science," said Duggar.

Jim Bob said this trip was more than just a fun day trip.

"The space and rocket center is a great place for families to come and spend time together and learn. And we home school, so we try to use every opportunity as a learning experience."

The producers of "19 Kids and Counting" have decided to make their visit to Huntsville an entire episode. It'll air some time once the new season premieres after the holidays.
