A crew of astronauts from the NASA Space X program Zoomed with middle school students on Tuesday, Nov. 16 to answer their questions about exploring the final frontier.
Astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker of NASA, and Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency zoomed with students around the country and shared about their exploration in space.
The SpaceX Crew-1 astronauts completed a 168-day mission before splashing down in their shuttle, Resilience, in the Gulf of Mexico in October. The crew spent their time on the International Space Station participating in a variety of research to understand how living in space affects the human body.
Students learned about the importance of teamwork, collaboration and "Resilience." The astronauts said they named their shuttle Resilience because resilience is the most important thing scientists and astronauts can have when faced with challenges.
