We’re flight controllers in NASA’s ISS science command post - Ask Us Anything
Thank you for your questions and interest! We are officially signing off for now, but some of our experts are sticking around just a bit longer for a few more answers. Bye, everyone!
Thanks for joining us! We'll be taking questions from 3 p.m. EDT - 4 p.m. EDT
Over the past 15 years of 24/7 operations, the team at NASA’s “science central,” the Payload Operations Integration Center at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama helped Scott Kelly and other crew members conduct more than 1,700 investigation from over 80 countries. We even commanded some experiments remotely from Earth. Flight controllers who work in the space station science command post are here to answer your questions about how they plan, schedule and complete research working with crews on the space station. They will explain how these studies benefit you and will help get humans to Mars.
Answering your questions today are:
Stephanie Dudley – International Space Station Payload Operations Director, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Pat Patterson – International Space Station Payload Operations Director, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
