Expedition 36 crew members and NASA astronauts Chris Cassidy and Karen Nyberg, currently orbiting aboard the International Space Station, spoke with students gathered at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center on Wednesday, June 19. Students were able to ask the astronauts questions about life, work and research aboard the orbiting space station. NASA activities have been incorporated into Cosmosphere summer programs and local Boys and Girls Club in preparation for the conversation with the space station astronauts. Linking students directly to the astronauts aboard the space station provides them with an authentic, live experience of space exploration, space study, the scientific components of space travel and possibilities of life in space.
