(NECN) - Some Connecticut students had a conversation that was out of this world.

Members of the Talcott Mountain Science Center in Avon, Conn. hosted students from surrounding schools to have a morning chat with the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Several students submitted questions and others were chosen by NASA to ask questions as well.

This is the first time any Connecticut school has participated in this space program, which has existed for more than 15 years as a joint venture of NASA and the American Radio Relay League.
