Today at 12:00 PM EDT J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Trek Into Darkness will have a Google Hangout with astronauts, including Chris Cassidy, one of the astronauts aboard the International Space Station who recently went on a space walk to fix an ammonia leak on the station. You can watch the whole thing right here, and we even have the details on how you can try to get a question in.
Abrams will be joined by the film’s producer Damon Lindelof, and actors Chris Pine, Alice Eve, and John Cho. Cassidy won’t be the only astronaut on the Hangout, just the only one currently in space. Astronauts Michael Fincke and Kheil Lindgren will be participating from the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
The group will be asking questions of each other, and probably talking about space and lens flare, but they’ll also be fielding questions from viewers like you. A feed will be set up at both the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. and they’ll also be taking questions submitted through social media with the hashtag #askNASA. If you want a shot at picking their brains, though, be sure to get your questions in ahead of time.
Watch the Hangout live right here, and don’t forget to submit your questions with the #askNASA tag:
