Boise voices will be heard in space during a call to astronauts Thursday.

Students from Boise State and Timberline High School will speak with NASA astronauts who are living, working and doing research aboard the International Space Station.

The call will take place at Timberline High School where they will ask questions to Expedition 54 astronauts about life in space.

Boise State and Timberline were selected through a competitive process to host the call. Preparation for the event includes students studying the station, astronaut biographies, and current research and happenings around the space station.

About 300 high school and college students are expected to be at Timberline High School during the call.

The 20-minute, Earth-to-space call will be live on NASA Television and the agency’s website at noon.
