THE BRONX -

Some summer campers got to have an out-of-this-world day when a NASA astronaut came to visit Friday.

Students with BronxWorks and SoBro summer camps got to meet astronaut Joe Acaba. He also brought some knowledge with him -- how to cook a space pizza!

Students also got to tour other booths set up for them by NASA and learned about an upcoming space trip -- all in the name of inspiring future generations.
