Corn mazes to celebrate NASA's wild years of space exploration? It's true, and there's one opening soon in Virginia.

Maze-goers will need many, many steps to find the exit for this maze in at Dewberry Farm in Brookshire, Texas. The corn idolizes Houston's Johnson Space Center, the nerve center of NASA's space missions that put the first U.S. citizen, John Glenn, into orbit.10 Photos

This fall, NASA is teaming up with seven farms (including one in Fredericksburg, Va.) to build giant corn mazes that honor major achievements in the U.S. space program. It's called the Space Farm 7 mission, and it is not a delusion in your head. Here are computer models of the NASA mazes that will debut later this month and in October, created by the world's largest corn-maze company, Utah's The Maize Inc.

Visit the Space Farm 7 website for a chance to enjoy dinner with an astronaut. Again, this is not a joke. Seriously. (CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE PHOTO GALLERY.)
