In what is quickly turning into a verifiable “thing,” the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will be answering another round of your questions in a Google Hangout in just one hour. The Hangout, which will see Chris Hadfield, Kevin Ford, and Tom Marshburn field your inquiries about their life and work on the ISS, will run from 10:30 to 11:30 EST, because seriously, you didn’t expect them to spend all day fielding questions, did you? These guys have jobs, you know. Like keeping the space station in orbit, just as a for example. If you think you could do that, too, though, by all means, watch with us this morning and find out if you’ve got what it takes to be an astronaut.
You can join the hangout and ask questions on NASA’s Google+ page. But if you can’t participate — after all, bosses tend to notice when you’re talking to your computer, especially when you’re asking things like “What’s it like to play guitar/eat ice cream/build pillow forts in space?” — we’ll have the live stream embedded right here so you can at least watch the fun.
If you do have a question you want to ask, though, go ahead and put it up on Twitter or Google+ with the hashtag #askAstro. Then tune in here at 10:30 to watch the fun and learn a little more about life on the ISS.
- This is a great test of the recently repaired communications system
- We probably won’t hear William Shatner on this one — but there’s always a chance!
- We’re all for astronaut accessibility, but hopefully these stay at least a little rare and special
