Students from Laurel Public Schools and community members spent nearly half an hour this morning talking with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station. The interaction is part of a NASA program to inspire the next generation of astronauts, engineers, and others who will support space exploration.

About a half-dozen Montana high school students are preparing to fabricate a part that will eventually end up flying on the International Space Station.

The students at Billings Career Center are part of a partnership called “High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware” or HUNCH.  The students create hardware, software, and other goods for astronauts.
