Space Station Interview

Space Station Interview

Connecting 250 miles above our planet, George conducted an interview with International Space Station(1) personnel, Mike Foale, the Expedition 8 Commander/NASA Science Officer (right) and Alexander Kaleri, a Russian Cosmonaut and Flight Engineer (left), who spoke through a translator. Notable sites such as the Egyptian pyramids and China's Great Wall are visible with binoculars, though locations such as cities and dams are more readily seen with the naked eye, said Foale.
The Space Station continues to expand, and Foale said its lifespan may extend up to 30 years, with other countries partnering, if the United States' involvement wanes. While he's seen unusual objects in space that have caught his attention, they invariably turn out to have a logical explanation, Foale noted. He believes the work of the space station is extremely valuable. "Keep looking up to the stars...and dreaming and looking beyond," he added.
