Students from across the nation will have an opportunity to talk with NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station on Friday, June 19 at 1:10 p.m. EDT. The special event will air live on NASA tv and stream live below.

NASA astronauts Bob Behnken, Chris Cassidy, and Doug Hurley will answer questions recorded by K-12 students from Challenger Learning Centers across the country. Nearly 60 students submitted questions, and a select group of those videos will air during the live event. Challenger Center is honored to have been selected to be part of this question-and-answer session, the first of its kind with astronauts who arrived to station on a commercially owned and operated spacecraft.
