of careers at the Johnson Space Center that are unrelated to being an astronaut."
Ruttley said NASA's Kepler Telescope has discovered 461 potential new planet candidates.
Ruttley said any kind of experiment that can be done on Earth can be done in space with much more interesting results.
Ruttley said they are also doing experiments in physics, biology, and just about every scientific or engineering discipline.
She said her other five science classes will be able to experience the same videoconference in coming weeks.
"What they're finding is that our bones start Red Air Max
"It's a lot more fun than what I did as a student in my science fair days," Ruttley said. "The number one coolest thing I think they work on is the human research. They test their own bodies for changes that occur in microgravity."

science experiments are performed in space.
She also showed live views of astronauts working in the training pools at Johnson Space Center that are used to imitate the zero gravity feeling in space as well as a live view of the International Space Station and Mission Control.
"The space station is actually bigger than a football field and is about the volume of a five bedroom home and uses about the same amount of power and electricity you would use in your house," Moore said, adding the power is generated through solar panels attached to the space station, which was built about 12 years ago.
"The spaceship may be used to go to the moon, Mars or another asteroid," she said. "Between 2015 and 2017, we'll hopefully have a spaceship that's ready to go into space. Right now, our goal for NASA is to look beyond Earth and look for places to go."
"It's bigger, it's better, it's got newer technology and can fit more people," she said.

With questions written on note cards in hand, about 30 of Dr. Laura Lamar's fifth grade students eagerly anticipated the arrival of Dr. Patricia Moore, NASA Digital Learning Network specialist, who video conferenced with them early Tuesday afternoon from Johnson Space Center in Houston.
"Only about 60 of Nike Air Max 2016 Women's Running Shoe (the 100 astronauts) are active astronauts that are eligible to go in space," Moore said. "There are lots Nike Air Max Wright - Men's
Moore also shared plans NASA has for the future, including a new rocketship the organization is building to send astronauts into space and a new spaceship called Orion that looks similar to the Apollo 11, which was used in the first moon landing in 1969.
"Of all of those, four of those are in what's called the 'habitable zone' and have the potential to have water on the surface," Ruttley said.

ACWORTH Students at Clark Creek Elementary School STEM Academy may view exploring outer space with NASA as a career that's no longer out of reach after experiencing a rare opportunity to video conference with members of Mission Control, the people in charge of operations for the International Space Station.
Lamar said she thought the students really enjoyed the experience and were able to bring thoughtful questions related to their recently completed biology unit.
"At Johnson Space Center, we focus on human space exploration and astronaut training," Moore told the students.
She said the first unmanned test of the spaceship is planned for 2015.
Lamar said she's also in talks with a physics professor at Georgia Tech about doing a hands on experiment using the videoconferencing system.
Later, students had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Tara Ruttley an associate program scientist for the International Space Station and Dan Huot, a NASA public affairs officer.
Student Sequoyah Jackson asked how many planets have been recently discovered and where they are located.
From her location at the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility, Moore gave students an overview of the Johnson Space Center, Mission Control and updates on what's going on at the International Space Station, which is orbiting the Earth at 17,500 miles per hour about 220 miles above the planet with six astronauts on board.
"I think they really liked the question answer part," Lamar said. "The kids get excited. All of those experiments they're doing now in outer space relate to everything we're learning in science."
Students also learned about the dehydrated food that astronauts eat and how microgravity affects everything astronauts experience and do in space.
"(The scientists) serve as live role models instead of just seeing their teachers all the time," Lamar said. "Some of these kids now think, 'I want to do what they're doing and school is important to get me there.' That makes my job easier, but I have high expectations. I tell them, 'if you want to do that, you're going to get there by being engaged with your education.'"
During a 30 minute informational session, Moore told students 13,000 people work at Johnson Space Center, with only a few hundred who are astronauts. She said there are teachers (like herself), media representatives, doctors, lawyers and all kinds of professions that work at NASA.
