International Space Station Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield will do a live video call with Alberta grade schoolers to talk about radiation in outer space.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield will be holding a video call session from the International Space Station to talk with Alberta students on March 11.

Chris Hadfield is analyzing radiation levels on the International Space Station (ISS) through a Canadian experiment called Radi-N2.

This experiment measures astronauts’ exposure to potentially dangerous neutron radiation using Canadian technology.

He’ll be speaking about the project as well as his other work on the ISS when he connects via video with about 1000 grade 9 to 12 students from Bert Church High School in Airdrie, Alberta.

Grade 9 science classes from Bert Church High School are part of the 300 classrooms participating in Let’s Talk Science’s CurioCity Radi-N2 & You high school action project that was developed to engage Canadian classrooms in a similar experiment.

Over 7,500 students across Canada are completing the project alongside astronaut Hadfield and comparing their radiation results to Hadfield’s data through Let’s Talk Science’s website.
