August 9 – 15: Space

Meet astronauts and virtually visit the planets and stars.

Look up! If you go outside on a clear night this week, you’ll have a good chance of seeing a shooting star as part of the Perseid meteor shower. On the Michigan Learning Channel, we’ll explore outer space with videos from NASA Astronauts and a special virtual event with the Michigan Science Center.
