ALAMOGORDO, N.M. – Some students in Alamogordo are getting an opportunity of a lifetime to speak with astronauts in space.
The New Mexico Museum of Space History was one of 14 lucky organizations nationwide, chosen to participate in an in-flight downlink program. It will be the state’s first ever K-12 Space Station Downlink.
NASA’s Johnson Space Center Office of Education facilitates the events that are designed to enhance student’s learning and interest in the space program.
Students will have a 20 minute window to ask questions of Astronauts Joe Acaba, Scott Tingle and Mark Vande Hei.
The Alamogordo Downlink project will be held at Alamogordo High School’s Tiger Pit next Wednesday, February 21. More than 1200 students are expected to attend.
