Maine Historic Event with our two NASA Astronauts

Join us when local students get to ask Maine astronauts a question while they are on the ISS!

On April 13, between 1:15-1:35 EDT, NASA Astronauts and Maine natives, Christopher Cassidy and Jessica Meir will make Maine history, and some lucky Maine students will be a part of it. For the first time, two Maine astronauts will be on board the International Space Station at the same time and students from Maine will be able to ask them both questions via video recordings. This historic event will be broadcasted live on NASA TV and on the Agency’s website

The Maine Space Grant Consortium and the Challenger Learning Center of Maine are co-hosting this live downlink and both Chris Cassidy and Jessica Meir’s mothers will also participate. The Maine Space Grant Consortium participating schools include Bristol Consolidated School, Brunswick Jr. High School, Jefferson Village School, Scarborough Middle School and South Bristol Elementary School as well as, Bowdoin College and the University of Maine.
