Space selfie! Where do you want to travel to for your next selfie?
Space Selfie! It's been said that it's difficult to get a good selfie while wearing a spacesuit, but an astronaut snapped this one during a spacewalk on April 23 outside the International Space Station! Astronauts Steve Swanson and Rick Mastracchio completed a short spacewalk to replace a failed Multiplexer/Demultiplexer (MDM) back up computer. The backup computer failed April 11 after a routine health check by the Mission Control team in Houston.

This coming Field Trip Friday, join a Google Science Fair 2014 “Galactic Hangout,” answering the question: What's it like to work in a spaceship factory?

What would it be like to work in the world’s first commercial spaceship factory? What kinds of jobs do people actually do there? What are their backgrounds, and how do they get hired?

You’ll see that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work in commercial space - although rocket scientists are always welcome!

We will be joined by space design guru Adam Wells, spaceship builder Joe Brennan, astronaut relations supremo Lauren De Niro Pipher – oh, and rocket scientist, Marissa Good! They'll all be live from Virgin Galactic’s factory in Mojave, California. You’ll find out what it takes to build the Earth’s first spaceline - scheduled to begin taking people up to space by the end of this year.

Sign up to attend, post your questions using the Q&A app, then come hear your questions answered live!

This session will be produced in collaboration with Google Connected Classrooms.

Field Trip Friday, April 25, 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 1800 GMT

Come Join a “Genetic Hangout” on DNA Day!

Did you know there’s a National Geographic project that’s tracking the historic migration patterns of the entire human species? Dr. Spencer Wells is a leading population geneticist, and director of the Genographic Project from National Geographic. His fascination with the past has led this scientist, author, and documentary filmmaker to the farthest reaches of the globe in search of human populations who hold the history of humankind in their DNA. By studying humankind's family tree - over 650,000 people have already participated - he hopes to close the gaps in our knowledge of human migration

As Dr. Spencer says, “The greatest history book ever written is the one hidden in our DNA.” Come hear about what Dr. Wells has learned from our DNA, and what he hopes to know in the future.

Sign up to watch, post your questions using the Q&A app, then come hear your questions answered live!

This session will be produced in collaboration with Google Connected Classroom. If you're an educator with a High School classroom who wants to actually join the Hangout, sign up on the Connected Classrooms form at #VirtualFieldTrips

It's your turn to change the world
Google Science Fair is an international, online science and technology competition that encourages students between the ages of 13 to 18 to be curious, ask questions, and perform science experiments to answer those questions. In partnership with 
Virgin GalacticLEGO Education, National Geographic, and Scientific American, Google invites these students to post their science projects online so that they may compete for prizes, scholarships, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

Google Science Fair 2014 launched on February 12. The project deadline for the competition is May 12.  The 90 Regional Finalists, Local Award winners and Scientific American Science in Action Award nominees will be announces in June.
