In-flight Activities from the International Space Station

This year NASA is celebrating a Year of Education on the International Space Station, as astronauts and former teachers Joe Acaba and Ricky Arnold make the International Space Station their home. While on board, they share their love of STEM and their passion for teaching. Educators can use the hashtag #TeacherOnBoard to follow the crew as NASA seeks to inspire students of all ages.

Plus: The first of Christa McAuliffe’s lost lessons finally was released from space, 32 years after she died aboard Challenger. NASA and the Challenger Center for Space Science Education posted a video of astronaut–educator Ricky Arnold performing one of McAuliffe’s experiments aboard the International Space Station. In the first lesson, Arnold uses chromatography paper, water, food coloring, and a felt pen to demonstrate how a mixture separates into its individual parts. Altogether, about six lessons will be released, including demonstrations of fluids and bubbles in weightlessness, and Sir Isaac Newton’s laws of motion. Astronaut–educator Joe Acaba also helped with the video lessons, before returning to Earth in February.
