Live Chat with an Astronaut

Join us for a free, virtual, conversation with a NASA Astronaut!


Meeting a retired astronaut can be a life changing experience for children and adults alike. The advances in technology, along with your participation, allows the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) to bring this opportunity to thousands of space enthusiasts across the world. Space enthusiasts will have the opportunity to join this intimate session via a virtual room with a limited number of participants. You will interact directly with a host and astronaut as they share their personal experiences.

This is your chance to have a true interaction with an American hero!
