"Rick will live aboard the ISS for 6 months. He plans to use the Travel Bug as a tool to teach students on Earth, in his home state of Connecticut, about geography and science. He’ll also earn the Solar System’s most elusive smiley and find the International Space Station geocache. This is a worldwide event and GC.com will be giving out a virtual souvenir for all event attendees. So put on your space helmets and come on out!
The launch time is scheduled for 10:08 CST Nov. 6/13 so when we have our event the launch will have already taken place, weather permitting.
