The Space Place, NASA’s award-winning Web site for kids, presents the Space Place cartoon kids hosting their own talk show “live” from the Space Place Clubhouse. Their guests are NASA scientists and engineers. The goal of “Space Place Live!” is to introduce kids to the human, down-to-Earth side of real scientists and engineers working in the space program. Each guest is presented as a passionate and accomplished role model for every child interested in science or engineering.
In the latest episode, the kids interview a cartoon version of the GOES satellite Deputy Project Manager, Andre Dress. Andre works at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. He talked with Kate and Kyo about preparing the new GOES-O weather satellite and the team for the most exciting day of the mission, the launch!
