On April 27, 2001, NASA had a live Webcast with Astronaut John "Danny" Olivas. Power to Learn users participated in the event. See what they had to say!
Noha, 6th Grade, Brooklyn
This was really good. I learned a lot about space. Thank you so much!
Abed, 8th Grade, Brooklyn
This was great, especially the tour of the mock station!
Marissa, 6th Grade, Brooklyn
I thought that astronauts had equipment to protect them from the sun's radiation, but I just learned today that they are still developing equipment for that.
Raymond, 6th Grade, Brooklyn
I like this program very much. It was very exciting. I learned many things like we can grow plants in space. Also, someday the people would be able to be protected from radiation.
Lisa, 8th Grade, Brooklyn
This was cool. I liked it. I love science. I even went to Space Camp and learned so much about space.
Brielle and Kristen, 8th Grade, Brooklyn
It was real interesting and we learned a lot. We are thinking about becoming astronauts. Science is our favorite subject. The only thing that would we would miss in space would be our food here!
Daniel, 6th Grade, Brooklyn
I really like the idea of sending the airplane into a dive and I thought that the presentation was amazing.
Mayra, 6th Grade, Brooklyn
I learned that astronauts were doing experiments to see how fish would reproduce in space being that there is no gravity. I guess the results of that experiment would answer my question. It will be interesting in finding out!!!
Cassandra, 8th Grade, Brooklyn
I enjoyed the webcast and I feel very honored to have had the chance to speak with an astronaut. I was glad that he was able to answer my questions. He also inspired me to try my hardest and be successful in whatever I choose to do.

I found space very intriguing.
Since its creation in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has achieved many remarkable scientific and technological feats in air and space. What do you think about these accomplishments? Do you have a favorite astronaut? What types of cool experiments would you like to see NASA attempt? Would you like to see human beings living in outer space one day? What do you think it would be like?
Tell us what you think about any of the above topics or anything else you would like to share with us about space!
