A lot of North Carolina students are feeling inspired to take their dreams to new heights, and some are even thinking about reaching for the stars.It’s not every day you get to Skype with someone from outer space, but that’s exactly what more than one thousand students at North Carolina State University got to do on Friday. “It was amazing to see Christina on the screen I couldn’t believe that she was actually hearing us and talking to us to see her zoom around on the international space station was really amazing,” said Ana Sofia Uzsoy, a junior at NC State majoring in Physics and Computer Science. “It’s kind of insane that [she came] from where I am right now.”
