Today, Feb. 27, the student broadcasters at TUTV will air a Q&A session with astronauts in the International Space Station beginning at 11:50 a.m. The event, broadcasted on Temple University’s television station, will last until 12:15, during which crew members will answer any questions.
The session will be led by Karina Cheung, a junior media studies and production major and TUTV’s Rudman Intern and Nick Lucier, a senior media studies and production major. School of Media and Communications students will be accompanied by College of Engineering students in order to ask educated questions about the future of science and technology. Those participating engineering students are part of Associate Professor John Helferty’s NASA-funded program, Student Space Exploration and Environmental Systems Laboratory.
The program will be viewable on local Comcast channel 50 and Verizon channel 45, as well as online at templetv.net.
