Astronauts aboard the International Space Station will sign with deaf students tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:40 am, Eastern.
The event will take place virtually and feature American Sign Language (ASL) and live Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) captioning.
NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Thomas Pesquet will answer video questions from deaf as well as blind students from around the country.
