Ray Scholars to Talk With Space Station Crew July 14
July 9, 2020 – Recipients of EAA's Ray Aviation Scholarships, which supply complete funding for flight training, will have a unique opportunity on July 14 as they will ask questions of the crew aboard the International Space Station.
Up to 20 of the scholarship recipients will be able to submit questions via video to astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who will answer them in a live session on NASA TV and the NASA website. The live broadcast is currently scheduled at approximately 12:10 p.m. Central Time on July 14.
Behnken and Hurley made history in May when they became the first astronauts to fly to the International Space Station aboard the Space X Crew Dragon reusable spacecraft, developed privately in conjunction with NASA for operational, long-duration missions to the space station.
Since the Ray Aviation Scholarship program's inception in 2019, nearly 200 flight training scholarships have been awarded. More information on the program is available at EAA.org/RayScholars.
