The astronauts and operators of future robotic vehicles who will be exploring the Moon, Mars and beyond are in high schools and grade schools across the country. Educating these future scientist and engineers is a priority for NASA, and many programs are available at all educational levels for students to get involved with THEIR space program.
As we prepare to explore, many current missions are conducting research critical to enabling this future exploration, just as the missions of the past have enabled today’s research on the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle.
