QUESTO è il modo di fare divulgazione più efficace…
E l’artefice sarà Barbara Morgan, la riserva della sfortunatissima Christa McAuliffe di STS-51L!
Meditate gente, meditate…
NASA is seeking formal and informal education institutions and organizations, individually or working together, to host live, in-flight education downlinks during STS-118, the first flight of an Educator Astronaut, Barbara Morgan. To maximize the impact of these events, NASA seeks organizations that will draw large participant numbers and demonstrate large-scale educational impact. STS-118 will have a lasting impression on the education community. The theme of the STS-118 education effort is Igniting the Flame of Knowledge.
Downlinks are approximately 20 minutes in length, and allow students and educators to interact with a crew on board the space shuttle through a question and answer session. A downlink is essentially a modified videoconference in which participants hear and see the crewmembers live from space. The crew does not see the audience. Downlinks afford education audiences the opportunity to learn first-hand from space explorers what it is like to live and work in space. These events are broadcast live on NASA TV.
Members of the U.S. informal and formal education communities are eligible to host these downlinks. Examples include museums and science centers, local school districts, national and regional education organizations, and local, state and U.S. government agencies. NASA provides this opportunity at no cost to the host.
The deadline to submit an application for STS-118 downlinks is March 9, 2007.
