NASA's jumping on board the virtual wagon to bring you a new program called "NASA at Home". Now you can engage in research, take virtual reality tours of NASA's facilities and the universe and have Michigan-born astronaut Christina Koch read books to your kids. Or, you can keep diving down deeper into the "Tiger King" story. Your choice.

NASA Television also is running NASA at Home-themed programming 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  weekdays, as well as broadcasting around-the-clock with recent mission events and news, conversations with astronauts on the International Space Station, educational looks at science, technology and exploration topics, and historical programs from the agency’s storied past.

NASA at Home will also feature Michigan-born astronaut Christina Koch (who just returned after spending almost a year in space on the ISS) reading children’s books weekdays at 4 p.m. on her Instagram live.

Have fun and stay safe!
