Ask an Astronaut

Thursday, July 9 @ 11:15 am

On May 30, 2020, NASA Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley made history as they launched into space on ISS Expedition 63 aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, the first crewed mission for commercial space.

On July 9, 2020, NASA Flight Engineer Bob Behnken will answer questions from undergraduate students while aboard the International Space Station. Two students who participate in the First Nations Launch Artemis Student Challenge will pose a question on behalf of their FNL team. Joshua from Northern Arizona University and Michael from Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College submitted questions to Colonel Behnken, anticipating live responses from Behnken.

From an engineering perspective, what significant enhancements have improved space travel from the rocket launch to docking at the space station? is there some innovation that has drastically improved your comfort or efficiency or safety?”

“Several countries and now commercial entities have launched astronauts to space. How does it feel to be a part of human history as space travel interests gets reignited?”
