Students from schools across Monrovia got a chance to watch a live downlink from the NASA international space station and ask astronauts questions Tuesday as part of a special event at Monrovia High School.

The Monrovia Unified School District was one of six school districts chosen in the country to get the opportunity to talk to astronauts after Pam Thompson submitted an application for the district.

Twenty students from different Monrovia schools were chosen to each ask the astronauts a question at the live event Tuesday morning as their classmates looked on. The 20 students were chosen by winning a contest in which students decorated a bookmark and included a question on it for the astronauts.
Questions Tuesday morning ranged from, “What is your favorite thing about living in a low-gravity environment?” to “How do you wash your clothes in outer space?”
