Space Station Crew to Talk with Students in Silicon Valley
News media representatives are invited to a live interactive event with students and the crew aboard the International Space Station as part of Destination Station activities during the month of March. The event takes place March 7 at The Tech Museum in San Jose, Calif.
Destination Station is NASA's national awareness campaign to promote space station research opportunities, educate the public about station activities, and communicate the current and potential future impacts of the station on everyday life.
The event begins at 10 a.m. PST. Expedition 30 Commander Dan Burbank and Flight Engineer Don Pettit aboard the space station will speak with students visiting the museum during the downlink portion of the event, which will be broadcast live on NASA Television beginning at 10:20 a.m. Journalists who would like to attend should contact Roqua Montez at 408-795-6225.
The downlink is one of several events planned March 1-12 to showcase the agency's newest multimedia exhibit, "Destination Station," which is free with admission to The Tech Museum. The exhibit is open to the public through April 15.
