With unique access to and footage from the ISS and Mission Control, National Geographic Channel’s LIVE FROM SPACE goes into orbit with astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata from the ISS. Astronaut Mike Massimino (most notably known for fixing the Hubble Telescope) will keep viewers grounded with Soledad O’Brien live from Houston. The ISS orbits Earth every 90 minutes, meaning NGC quite literally takes viewers on a trip around the world, sharing incredible looks at the planet, from sunset and sunrise, to city lights and green aurora, to lightning storms and shooting stars. Astronauts, flight controllers and researchers will be featured in original segments from the ISS and NASA Mission Control during the course of the two-hour live event.
