Iowa Students Speak Live With NASA Space Station Astronauts

DAVENPORT, Iowa -

Some students in Iowa got an out of this world experience.

Twenty lucky students got a firsthand look into life in outer space at the Putnam museum in Davenport when they got to chat with two astronauts from the international space station.

Students asked everything from 'how do you keep in touch with family and friends back on planet earth?' and 'what's life like with no gravity?'

One astronaut replied, "It's really hard to find a place to put your pencil, we spend a lot of time trying to figure out where to put our things so they don't float away and they don't get lost."

The museum was picked by NASA as one of only six places across the country to host the earth to space video call.
