Space travel. NASA experts, including crew members aboard the International Space Station, will answer questions about science, technology, education and mathematics (STEM) disciplines during a forum called “Women in STEM: STEM in the Global Science Community” from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Feb. 17.

The event will be carried live on NASA Television and the agency’s website, and take place in the James E. Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

The forum will discuss the role of STEM in the global science community and STEM’s importance to future exploration. Event participants will highlight scientific endeavors taking place on the space station and in the global science community that are fulfilling the dual role of preparing humans for the journey to Mars and providing real benefits to life on Earth.

The event is open to the public, but seating is very limited. Anyone may participate in the conversation virtually by asking questions via Twitter using the hashtag #asknasa.

The forum panelists are:

– Ellen Stofan, NASA chief scientist.

– Cady Coleman, NASA astronaut.

– LaNetra Tate, principal Investigator for advanced manufacturing and nanotechnology, Space Technology Mission Directorate

Space travel. The forum also will include a live conversation with space station Expedition 42 Flight Engineers Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency and Elena Serova of the Russian Federal Space Agency. Students from Washington-area schools will be in the audience to ask questions of Cristoforetti and Serova.
