Watch as astronaut Thomas Marshburn reads out loud from the children’s book “Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown while floating in microgravity aboard the International Space Station. Also, Astronaut Mark Vande Hei joins Thomas to answer questions sent to them. This video was featured as a part of the Crayola and Harper Kids “Read Along, Draw Along” event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the book’s publication. Astronauts will return to the Moon as part of the Artemis program. Artemis I will be an important step in NASA’s goal to land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, and establish long-term lunar exploration. This mission will be the first flight test of the integrated Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket.
