TMN Tuesday – a monthly AT from the State Office.
Astronaut Kjell Lindgren has offered a once in a lifetime experience for the Texas Master Naturalist Program. He’d like to ‘downlink’ from the International Space Station with the Texas Master Naturalist Program and connect his work on the ISS to the service TMN’s provide and answer any general questions that his fellow naturalist volunteers have.
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.
*The date and time may remain flexible based on mission priorities on the ISS so stay tuned!
