GEHMS Students Follow International Space Station Astronauts “Live” Space Walk!

space walk watch

Students watched “real-time” video stream beamed by NASA from the International Space Station as astronauts worked outside the spacecraft during an all-day space walk to update the ISS docking system.

What could be a better way to generate questions about the water cycle, life needs, physics or inventions then marveling at the wonder of astronauts maneuvering around a spacecraft 250 miles above our heads in the extreme environment of space?

Is there water in space? The earth looks blue! What happens if he lets go? How do the astronauts get inside the space station without letting the air out? Are they up there right now? Do the astronauts bring books with them? How do they use the robot arm?
