Houston: Sharon, Massachusetts Hears You Loud and Clear!

Yesterday, we had a very special adventure. One of our third grade classrooms got to talk via skype with Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center in Houston!

Our kids talked to Mr. Yamil Garcia. He helps the astronauts stay fit and strong, just like we are trying to do with our Mission X/Train Like an Astronaut program.

Mr. Garcia answered our questions about keeping fit in space and what it is like to fly in zero-gravity. He got to do that recently, just like the astronauts do when they train for their missions.

Thanks, Mr. Garcia, for answering our questions!

We also learned more about space and space history. Who knows? Maybe in the future, we’ll be making space history too! Mission Control: Sharon says over and out -- for now!
