Woodlands Students to Talk Live with Astronauts

November 15, 2012 9:19 AM | News

Students at Woodlands Elementary School will get to chat with astronauts aboard the International Space Station this morning.

The live video conference will include 25 Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) communities in the U.S. and Canada. Each community will get to ask a question during the conference.

Space Station General John R. Dailey and Tony Miller, U.S. deputy secretary of education, will open the feed shortly after 10:30 a.m. CT.

Following the conversation, Woodlands School will announce the three schools, student groups and teachers who have made the final selections for the international review panel for the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program. One of the three finalists will eventually be chosen to fly to the ISS in the spring of 2013.
