Space Station astronauts wished hundreds of Missoula students happy new year as they soared above Missoula.
Then they did a little floating to show what it's like in space.
Target Range Elementary School hosted a special, one of a kind video conference call from Target Range to space.
The astronauts take 90 minutes to orbit the earth.
It took them 7 minutes to travel from high above Hawaii to Big Sky Country.
Students who won an essay contest interviewed commander Kevin Ford.
It was a once in a lifetime experience, said the students.
