MAST Academy phones International Space Station

http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/MAST-Academy-Students-Call-Astronaut-on-Space-Station-138609624.html

Students from MAST Academy made the long distance call of a lifetime Thursday, phoning an astronaut living aboard the International Space Station.

The Key Biscayne school was one of just four schools in the country chosen to speak with the space station’s mission commander, Dan Burbank. Students were asked to think of a question they would ask an astronaut, and the winners were able to pose theirs to Burbank.

The whole school and NASA watched as MAST students experienced an out of this world talk-back with a NASA astronaut, on subjects ranging from solar flares to space station showers.

Senior Allyson Smith said she was shaking with nerves as she spoke with Burbank.

”Exciting, nerve-wracking. A bunch of things at the same time,” she said. “He’s my end goal right now. I want to be him up in space, answering questions.”
