Looks like it pays to ask the experts. Four-year-old Lucas Whiteley of West Yorkshire, England, needed help with a school project about space and decided to go right to the source, sending his three questions to NASA via their website. And believe it or not, they answered.
NASA engineer Ted Garbeff sent Lucas a 10-minute personalized video, answering all of his questions and giving him a virtual tour of his California base. Lucas’ teachers were so impressed they played the video in front of all the students at a special assembly. In the clip, Ted is heard urging the kids to listen to their teachers and added that he hoped to see them all “up in space one day.”
And while some would think making the video would be too time consuming for an engineer like Ted, he was more than happy to do it. He said it was “super fun” to make and added, “I'm always happy to talk about NASA.” What a star!
