My students talk to NASA’s Mission Control, today

It’s one of those rare events. A classroom of students get to talk to Mission Control in Houston.

This is one of the many NASA programs we are lucky to be involved in.

Just last November, my technology class got to talk to one of the few Native Americans working at NASA, about a humanoid robot known as Robonaut.

Today’s one-hour event is divided into a 30-minute class-like session, and the  next 30-minutes will be a video-conference with scientists at Mission Control. They tell us there is a strong possibility the students may be patched into the International Space Station, and talk to an astronaut on board!

That segment will be broadcast live on NASA TV. Also:

  • Direct TV in the U.S.A : Channel 346 from 10:30-11:00 AM (ISS Control Mission)
  •  NASA Television’s Public (101) and Media (103) NASA TV’s Media Channel (channel 103) provides mission control
  •  NASA on DISH TV Channel 212 in the U.S.A from 10:30-11:00 AM (ISS Control Mission)
  •  NASA on COMCAST, USA Channel 271 ?
