StarChild Question of the Month for October 1998

Question:

How do I contact an astronaut?

Shuttle

Answer:

Unfortunately there is no way for you to contact an active astronaut directly. You can, however, write to an astronaut of your choosing at the following address:

Astronaut Office/CB
NASA Johnson Space Center
Houston, TX 77058

Be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for them to use to respond to you and also give it some time for they are really busy.

Also, there is an Ask An Astronaut website, but beware about only 10 % of submitted questions are responded to at: http://www.discoverspace.org/askastronaut_current.cfm

Happy searching!
