From the International Space Station, Expedition 25 Commander Doug Wheelock and Flight Engineers Shannon Walker and Scott Kelly discussed life and work aboard the orbital laboratory with students gathered at the Department of Education in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 23. The event attracted a number of dignitaries, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan and NASA’s Associate Administrator for Education, astronaut Leland Melvin. Wheelock and Walker will return to Earth Thanksgiving Day with Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin for a landing in their Soyuz TMA-19 spacecraft on the steppe of Kazakhstan. Kelly will become station commander during a Change of Command ceremony Wednesday and remain on the complex until March.
