Q & A with NASA Astronauts on the International Space Station
Join Million Girls Moonshot on January 7 for an exciting start to the new year!
Afterschool programs and youth are invited to a virtual trip to the International Space Station to see and hear Expedition 64 astronauts Kate Rubins and Shannon Walker answer questions from youth around the country. Between noon and 1 p.m. ET on Jan, 7, the astronauts will answer prerecorded questions from aboard the International Space Station. At a special afterschool-hours event, NASA will host a Watch Party at 5 p.m. ET to view the astronaut Q&A from earlier in the day and have scientists and engineers on hand to answer questions from students live!
