Space Station Live: Student Science Reaches Higher Orbits

NASA Public Affairs Officer Brandi Dean speaks with Michelle Ham, U.S director of ISSET and president and founder of Higher Orbits, about opportunities for students to get involved with science aboard the International Space Station. Mission Discovery, sponsored by ISSET and Higher Orbits, is a five-day program for high school and university students that uses space to get students interested in STEM fields -- science, technology, engineering and math. Students work in teams to design an experiment, and the winning team's experiment flies to the space station. The first set of winning experiments recently flew to the station aboard Orbital Sciences' Cygnus cargo ship during its first operational resupply flight.

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams 1952 - 2001
