The first lesson will be a field trip through the shuttle and will give you an idea of how people must adjust to live in space. The other lesson will be about why we are in space and will explain some of the experiments that are flown aboard the shuttles and will also mention the satellites which are launched on my mission...I am excited about my upcoming trip in January but I am also missing my classes of junior and senior high school students in Concord, New Hampshire."
