March 29 2011 1740 UTC Dr. Cady Coleman Texas School Contact

Recorded the first part of the contact. Very low pass for me in Wisconsin. Got to about question #5.

Lehman High School is located in Kyle, Texas, about 40 miles south of Austin. The school, which opened its doors in 2004, has an enrollment of 1,800 students. It is a full four year comprehensive high school with the usual full complement of courses needed to prepare students for a successful future.
Lehman High School has its own satellite tracking station on campus. Students participating in the ISS contact researched and studied the topic of space travel before submitting their questions.

Students will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1. How will robots be used to make space travel safer for astronauts?
2. Do you feel intimidated by being the only woman on your crew?
3. What kind of electrical storage do you use?
