Elmo Visits NASA
Space shuttles flew into space for 30 years. The people who live on Sesame Street wanted to learn more about NASA's space shuttles and how NASA people use science and math every day. So they sent Elmo to the last shuttle launch. Elmo put on his flight suit, made just for him, and went to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Former astronaut Leland Melvin helped Elmo learn more about NASA. Watch the videos to see what Elmo learned!
