STATION CREW GETS FINAL CALL

     Students and educators will have the final classroom 
chat with the ninth crew of the International Space Station 
Tuesday at 11:25 a.m. EDT.

The Maryland Science Center will host students and teachers 
from Baltimore's Francis Scott Key Elementary and Middle 
School for the event. The call will be down linked and 
broadcast live on the Web and NASA TV.

The Expedition 9 crew, Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka and 
NASA astronaut Mike Fincke, will return to Earth this month 
and be replaced by a new Station crew.

This activity supports NASA's efforts to encourage students 
to study and possibly pursue careers in science, technology, 
engineering and mathematics. It is an integral part of NASA's 
Teaching from Space Program. The program builds partnerships 
with the education community to create unique learning 
opportunities through the use of NASA's research and 
educational technology.
