Send a Postcard to Space

Hi Room 9, I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays.  I see that some of you have been on the wiki – well done!

I’m sure you all remember our visitor Eric Boe who came to school to tell us about space, NASA and the International Space Station (ISS).

There are a few astronauts on the ISS at the moment and one of them has a birthday.  Ask your parents first, but if you’d like to send a birthday card to Michael Barratt (in space) click on this link and follow the instructions.  Where it says “Type your city” I also added NZ so that he’d know it was from New Zealand.

I wonder if he’s having a birthday cake?

  1. What a great thing to be able to do. Technology is amazing. My husband recently meet a retired astronaut where he works. His company makes a chemical that is used in waterproofing the tiles on the space shuttle. I found that little tidbit very interesting. I wish we had know that we could send the cards, my daughters would have loved that.

  2. Mr F, I am very envious of your photo with Col. Boe and your autograph!!!! What a lucky teacher you are. It was such an amazing experience wasn’t it?!?!?!
