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 (STEM). 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.

For almost 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 the primary woman and therefore the next man 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.
