On Thursday November 17 the students at Spanish Fork Junior had the opportunity to participate in a Zoom call with Warren Imker, who is an aerospace engineer and is a system engineer for NASA and worked on the recently launched Artemis rocket.

Warren gave the students a presentation about the Artemis rocket and talked about the future of the space program, from an eventual moon landing to missions to Mars! After the presentation students and teachers had the opportunity to ask questions. The questions ranged from "Is the Artemis rocket taller than the Eiffel Tower?" to "What happens if an astronaut vomits in space?" He also talked about what kind of school degree he has, where he went to school, and what other kinds of jobs NASA employees may have.

We are very thankful to Warren and his willingness to take time out to speak to us all the way from Alabama!
