Seeing Stars

More than 950 Pell Elementary School students participated in a “Space Chat” on Oct. 2, and were joined by guest speakers Rep. Marvin Abney and Gov. Gina Raimondo. Of 200 responses to the “Ask the astronaut a question” segment, 22 of the most unusual were chosen. Students participated in a real-time Q-and-A session with astronaut Ricky Arnold, while he zoomed 225 miles above the earth at a speed of 18,000 mph. Here, Rogers High School sophomore Eleni Cooper helps document the event. (Photos by Jen Carter)
