NASA STUDENT EMPLOYEES CHAT WITH SPACE STATION CREW

     NASA's student employees will end their summer with an 
out-of-this-world experience. While most students are 
preparing to head back to school, students who worked at 
NASA facilities will talk with the crew aboard the 
International Space Station. 

Students at NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston and Goddard 
Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., will have the unique 
opportunity to interact directly with Expedition 7 
crewmembers, Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA Space 
Station Science Officer Ed Lu. Additionally, students will 
chat with Expedition 7 lead Flight Director John McCullough 
and NASA's Chief Scientist and astronaut Dr. Shannon Lucid. 

The live downlink portion of the program will be broadcast 
live on NASA TV beginning at 11:35 a.m. EDT, Wednesday. NASA 
TV is located at AMC-9, transponder 9C, C-Band, located 85 
degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. 
Polarization is vertical, and audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz. 

This event is part of NASA's Teaching From Space Program. 
The program enables educational opportunities using the 
environment of human space flight. The program builds 
partnerships with education communities to create learning 
opportunities through the use of NASA research and 
educational technology. Many NASA educational and employment 
programs are available for students nationwide. These 
programs give students the opportunity to work at NASA 
centers with scientists and engineers.
