INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John Shoffner.
In May 2023 John Shoffner realized his lifelong dream of becoming an astronaut. He piloted Axiom Space Ax-2, the second private mission to the International Space Station (ISS) in history – launching on a Falcon 9 rocket aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule alongside famed NASA astronaut, Commander Peggy Whitson.
“I traded in my trash can spaceship for a Dragon capsule,” says Shoffner. John had been prepping his whole life for this. Now, he is determined to foster that wide-eyed curiosity in students, so they don’t wait a lifetime to go to space like he did.
Throughout the duration of his mission on the ISS, Shoffner filmed a series of 16 videos demonstrating life in microgravity alongside Commander Whitson. The short series “Habitat Space” released Tuesday and provides new perspective of living in space. Each episode is 2-5 minutes in length and covers a range of entertaining and educational content.
Viewers can expect to laugh at space jokes, watch John as he’s quickly humbled by life microgravity, and draw parallels to life in space and Earth – all without realizing they’re learning something new!
“Habitat Space” is free for educational use. Watch all 16 episodes and learn more about the Perseid Foundation at: https://perseidfoundation.org/resources/
