Astronaut and Senator Connect Virtually with Students

At the eighth annual AeroSpace Days, first mom in space, Astronaut Anna Fisher, and Sen. Louise Lucas, interacted with students from Mack Benn Jr. Elementary School in Suffolk, Va. through NASA’s Distance Learning Network (DLN). The DLN connection was located at the Virginia General Assembly Building in Richmond, Va. With just an iPad, Fisher and Lucas answered various questions the NASA Explorer School (NES) students had while sharing some of their own story. Credit: NASA/Gary Banziger
