All Saints STEAM Academy, Middletown RI will made history today when they became the first Rhode Island school to chat with International Space Station.

Students from across the state — Providence, Greenville, Barrington, Jamestown, and Aquidneck Island asked Astronaut Jeff Williams (veteran NASA astronaut, with RI connections – 1996 graduate of the Newport Naval War College, 2007 recipient of an honorary doctorate from Johnson & Wales University) questions about life on the ISS.

The live feed came in between 12:30pm to 1pm and I had some reaction to the call after 1pm.

Listen 12:30pm – 1pm
