The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has responded to a Twitter post by a teacher from Karachi, wherein she had posted some space-related questions by her fourth-grade students.
A group of fourth-graders from The Cornerstone School in Karachi came up with space-related queries for scientists and astronauts at NASA. In order to spread the message across NASA and get a response, the teacher took a shot and tweeted the same, tagging the space agency as well as prominent astronauts’ official Twitter handles.
Over 2,000 people retweeted the letter that eventually reached scientists and astronauts who answered all the queries and invited the kids to be their guest after the pandemic.
Here is the reply from Emily Calandrelli, an American science communicator and the host of Xploration Outer Space.
Here’s what Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield had to say:
People, including the teacher, were overwhelmed by the responses and appreciated the effort as DLR — German Aerospace Center — also responded.
Some even suggested that Federal Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry should get involved to help other children have their questions answered.
