ISS Crew Rings The Nasdaq Bell Amidst Troubles Back On Earth

Keith's update: These two events happened a few hours - and a few hundred feet - apart from one another. Some people are looking up to the sky for answers while others seek some answers back on Earth.

NASA to Ring The Nasdaq Stock Market Opening Bell from the International Space Station in Honor of the First Commercial Crew Launch

"NASA will ring the Nasdaq Opening Bell remotely from the International Space Station to commemorate the first Commercial Crew launch. Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator, Demo - 2 Launch Crew, Robert Behken, Douglas Hurley, and ISS Commander Chris Cassidy, will ring the Opening Bell in a virtual bell ringing ceremony from the International Space Station. Tuesday, June 2, 2020 - 9:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. ET"

Keith's note: Its not clear what bell will actually be rung - the ISS has a ship's bell which was rung to welcome the Dragon crew yesterday. A live event "Tue., June 2, 9:20 a.m. EDT: SpaceX employee event and Class of 2020 Mosaic presentation with ISS crew" is shown on the NASA TV schedule with the ISS crew starting at 9:15 am.
