Plan a Watch Party
Organize a group to watch the In-flight Downlink Live
Students have a unique and exciting opportunity to hear astronauts answer questions LIVE from the space station. NASA astronauts will broadcast their answers on NASA TV through an In-flight Education Downlink. During the 20-minute question-and-answer session, astronauts answer pre-recorded students' questions live on-air. The broadcast will also be recorded and posted on the NASA Downlink YouTube channel and the Smithsonian Learning Lab following the livestream.
