A musical moment on the space station

During a Digital Learning Network event on May 2, International Space Station Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency shared a musical moment with students in Japan and the Houston, Texas-area. Wakata and the students discussed life and research on the station and played music for each other as the station soared 260 miles over Earth at a speed of 17,500 miles an hour.
