Maryland Students to Speak to NASA Astronaut on Space Station

Students at Leeds Elementary School in Elkton, Maryland, will speak with a NASA astronaut living and working aboard the International Space Station at 9:30 a.m. EDT on Friday, June 9. The 20-minute, Earth-to-space call will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.                                            


Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer will answer questions about space and his current mission from pre-K to fifth-grade students assembled at the school. The downlink will be available for simulcast in county schools so that other students may experience the event.

Fischer launched to the International Space Station in April. He is scheduled to return to Earth in September.
