More than 200 students gathered at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond to speak with NASA astronaut and Expedition 32 flight engineer Joe Acaba aboard the International Space Station.
The event included a question and answer session conducted in Spanish. Many of the students also participate in other NASA programs, including camps associated with the agency's Summer of Innovation (SoI) project. SoI provides hands-on learning opportunities for middle school students and educators through NASA-unique science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educational activities during the summer school break.
Acaba arrived at the space station with Russian Federal Space Agency's cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Sergei Revin on May 17. They will be joined later this month by NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide and cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko.
