In-flight Education Downlinks
March 7, 2013

[image-12] Wouldn't it be great if students could talk with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station about what it is like to live and work in space? Well, they can! Educational organizations located in the United States can host an in-flight education downlink with space station crew members. Students pose questions and watch as astronauts answer the questions and demonstrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts in ways that are impossible on Earth.

NASA’s Office of Education is not currently accepting proposals for downlinks. Check this website often for updates about the next proposal cycle. For questions please contact JSC-downlinks@mail.nasa.gov.
