Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 53 Flight Engineers Joe Acaba of NASA, a former educator, and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency discussed the value of education aboard the orbital complex during a Facebook Live question and answer session Oct. 16. Joined by ISS Program Manager Kirk Shireman on the ground from the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Acaba and Nespoli fielded questions about their life and work in orbit and how it can stimulate students to pursue careers in mathematics, science and engineering. Acaba and another former educator, NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold who will launch to the station next March, are conducting back-to-back missions on the station to contribute their educator skills in a year’s worth of interaction with students around the world.
