Linking students directly to astronauts aboard the space station provides unique, authentic experiences designed to enhance the student's learning, performance and interest in science, technology, technology and mathematics. Astronauts living in space at the labeling laboratory communicate with NASA's Mission Control Center in Houston 24 hours a day through the network's tracking and data reading satellites (TDRS).
