International students in Panama will have a chance in the week to speak with NASA astronauts aboard the International space platform . The Earth-to-space call will air live at 10:35 a.m. EST Friday, Jan. 24, on NASA television and therefore the agency’s website.
NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will answer questions from students pre-K through 12th grade from the International School of Panama and secondary school students from other schools in Panama City. The International School of Panama may be a non-profit, independent school which serves students from quite 40 countries including the us and receives support from the U.S. Embassy.

Linking students on to astronauts aboard the space platform provides unique, authentic experiences designed to reinforce student learning, performance and interest in science, technology, engineering and arithmetic . Astronauts living in space on the orbiting laboratory communicate with NASA’s Mission center in Houston 24 hours each day through the Space Network’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS).
For nearly 20 years, astronauts have continuously lived and work on the space platform , testing technologies, performing science and developing the talents needed to explore farther from Earth. Through NASA’s Artemis program, the agency will send astronauts to the Moon by 2024, with eventual human exploration of Mars. Inspiring subsequent generation of explorers – the Artemis Generation – ensures America will still lead in space exploration and discovery.
