LIVE International Space Station NASA Downlink
May 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
On May 14, 2018, Oklahoma students get a rare opportunity to talk and interact LIVE with NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
As part of our ongoing STEM education mission, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium will be hosting a Live NASA Downlink inside the Planetarium. Earlier this year, TASM sponsored an essay contest for area students to get a chance to pose questions to astronauts during the downlink.
International Space Station In-flight Education Downlinks support NASA’s efforts to encourage K-12 students to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Downlinks are facilitated by the Johnson Space Center Office of Education as part of STEM on Station, using the unique experience of human spaceflight to promote and enhance STEM education.
Our students will watch as crew members discuss and demonstrate concepts in ways unique to space and impossible on Earth. Downlinks are also broadcast Live on NASA TV and streamed on the web.
Planetarium seating is limited. Selected essay contest winners and their guests will have first options for seating in the Planetarium. Overflow guests may view the Live NASA Downlink throughout other locations in the Museum.
