Question: What Would You Ask Barbara Morgan?

The day has come for Barbara Morgan to fulfill the legacy teacher Christa McAuliffe dreamed of: Talking to students from space. This afternoon, Morgan will speak with students in Idaho, where she taught elementary classes before moving to Houston in 1998 to become the first teacher to train as a full-fledged astronaut. She finally launched into space on Aug. 8 aboard the shuttle Endeavour, after a two-decade wait. Morgan was McAuliffe’s backup for Challenger’s doomed mission in 1986. A list of topics Mission Control sent her earlier this week included questions from children about what it’s like to be weightless, how the crew gets clean air aboard the shuttle, and what stars look like from space/Liz Austin Peterson, Associated Press.
