Watch kids talk to astronaut in space

The Duluth Children’s Museum is preparing for a special chat between a group of local kids and an astronaut currently aboard the International Space Station, via amateur radio.

The 10-minute live forum will take place today starting at 10:03 a.m. and will bounce between the museum’s participants and astronauts as the astronauts orbit 250 miles above Earth.

The public is invited to listen and engage in special engineering and space activities surrounding the radio contact. Doors to the “command center” open to the public at 9:30 a.m. with no admittance after 9:45 a.m. Refreshments will be served and admittance will be free up until 9:45 a.m. The museum is located at 115 S. 29th Ave. W. in the Clyde Iron complex.
