Hangout With Astronauts on the International Space Station

NASA will host a Google+ Hangout Fri., Feb. 22, live from the International Space Station. The hangout will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST.

You can ask questions about life on the International Space Station to astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield, and Tom Marshburn.

NASA will be taking live questions on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ during the hangout. Use the hashtag #askAstro so NASA sees your questions. 

Hangouts are limited to 10 people at a time, so NASA is also encouraging fans to submit their video questions ahead of time. Several of these questions will be picked and aired during the hangout when the astronauts answer them live.
