Astronaut Nicholas Patrick taught us lots about ham radios, and he also answered our questions about living on the International Space Station:
Natalie: We asked lots of different questions, and Dr. Patrick explained his answers well. We all learned something!
Pablo: I learned how astronauts sleep in space.
Lauren: It was cool to learn about how astronauts eat and go to the bathroom on the ISS!
Catalina: We learned that it's OK to play with your food in space!
Eduardo: I learned that astronauts take a "shower" with cloths.
Bernarda: It was exciting, and I got to ask TWO questions.
Julie: I learned that when astronauts sit on the toilet, it works like a gentle vacuum.
Thank you Dr. Patrick and Laurent Thomin, at the AWTY International School, for arranging this fabulous exchange!
