Houston Medical Students to Speak Live with NASA Astronaut on Space Station

Medical students from The University of Texas Health Sciences Center (UTHealth) in Houston will speak with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station next week. The Earth-to-space call, part of NASA’s Year of Education on Station, will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor will answer questions about life and work aboard the space station from students at her alma mater UTHealth at 12:50 p.m. EDT Thursday, Sept. 27.

The event will take place in MSB 3.001 of the McGovern Medical School at 6431 Fannin St. in Houston. Media interested in covering the event should contact Deborah Mann Lake at or 713-500-3304.

Linking students directly to astronauts aboard the space station provides unique, authentic experiences designed to enhance student learning, performance and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Astronauts living in space on the orbiting laboratory communicate with NASA’s Mission Control Center in Houston 24 hours a day through the Space Network’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS).
