NASA's Joe Noto shares his love for all things outer space

NASA's Joe Noto shares his love for all things outer space with students at Emerson & Franklin

Hundreds of students at Emerson and Franklin got a first-hand look at the wonders of what goes into a job with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration - NASA.  

Joe Noto, a Propulsion Flight Controller & Flight Operations Directorate at NASA's Johnson Space Center, shared his job, what he's learned, and how he got there. Noto said he became interested in astronautics and aeronautics in middle school. 

The presentation covered what NASA is, what they do, and Artemis. Noto was there in person for the Artemis launch and got to work in Mission Control during the mission. He also showed students what a  rocket launch looks like just 3.5 miles from the launch site. 

Additionally, Noto shared one of his most important keys to listening. "It's something you can do every day in your life. It's just being a good listener," said Noto to a group of Franklin 4th & 5th graders.

"If you guys can make sure to actively listen to parents, teachers, friends, cousins, aunts, and uncles, just focus when people are talking and listen to what they're saying. Try to be the best learner you can, and you guys can do whatever you want in life."

Here are some photos from Noto's visits!
