“ Story Time from Space” is a project sponsored by the Global Space Education Foundation, a nonprofit education organization that works with NASA. The first five books chosen to be read in orbit from the International Space Station were written by Dr. Jeffrey Bennett. These elementary grade-level books feature Dr. Bennett’s dog, Max, as he goes on learning adventures in space.
As the space station orbits, the books are being read all over the world in English, German and Japanese. During April 2015, nine science experiments designed by the “Story Time from Space” team will be launched into space for the astronauts to perform and broadcast to the world from the International Space Station. Through the “Story Time from Space” program, students can read along with astronauts in space, participate in long-distance experiments and learn more about science, technology, engineering and math.
