Tonight’s the Night, We’re Going “Live From Space!” Tweet Your Questions Now!

The International Space Station orbits the earth every 90 minutes, which means tonight we are literally taking you on a journey around the world. Join us as we broadcast Live From Space!

But have no fear tiny earthling, you need not travel 220 miles above the earth at speeds of 17,500 mph for the awe-inspiring view. Relax, sit back, and journey with us into space from the comfort of your living room.

Be sure to watch our exclusive live feeds from inside the space station and mission control, which begins tonight at 7P. Then at 8P, tune in to the National Geographic Channel for the live two-hour event.

From space, we’ll go into orbit with astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata, who will give viewers a fully guided tour, showing us how they live for months in microgravity. They’ll conduct never-before-broadcast experiments that demonstrate the real-world value of the science conducted on the floating laboratory. Plus, get ready for stunning shots of Earth, from sunset and sunrise, to city lights and green aurora, to lightning storms and shooting stars. You’ve never seen our planet like this before.

Have a question for the astronauts? We’re all ears! Ask away with hashtag #LiveFromSpace, and your question may be selected and answered on-air during the show!

We’re live tweeting now from @Natgeochannel with astronaut Ron Garan @Astro_Ron and will be fielding questions throughout the show!

Don’t miss the epic two-hour event, Live From Space, tonight at 8P!

    Does a toy gyroscope react in space the same way it does on earth?

    You liars should have told the truth. You should have said during the show that only people who live on the East coast could tweet questions; unlike other networks you don’t have the respect for your West coast audience to have anybody answer tweets when the show is broadcast in our time zone.

    While lists of experiments often get made, ongoing results or challenges not so much. I would like to know what plant experiments are ongoing, the current results and how hard is it to convince plants to grow without gravity. Is light the key to their growth direction?
