As this is a special event, the timing of this #TMNTuesday will be a little different.
Join us from 3:30-3:55pm CST* as Kjell gives us an insight to all things Astronaut, ISS research, and his time as a Master Naturalist! Streaming may begin as early at 3:00pm with final connections being verified.
The event will be livestreamed via a few outlets – including our YouTube channel, our website and possibly our Facebook Page. Please stay tuned as final tech is set up for this event. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
In preparation for this downlink we have collected questions from fellow Texas Master Naturalists. We will review and synthesize the questions collected, get them approved via the NASA Astronauts team and then submit them to Kjell to review and prep for his downlink discussion. Be aware that not every question submitted or even approved for his response will have a chance to get answered. Note that the event is a one way, 20-minute discussion between the TMN State Office and Kjell on the ISS with those questions being the source for discussion – any chat or comments added into the livestream platforms cannot be asked.
