Both Sides of the Holiday Hookup Are Far From
Some U.S. forces in Iraq will get the chance during the
holidays to talk with two NASA astronauts aboard the International
Space Station who also are far away from their families and
friends. A 20-minute live video downlink will start at 8 a.m. CST
on Dec. 29. The event will be carried live on NASA Television and
streamed on the agency's Web site.
Station Commander Jeff Williams, a retired U.S. Army colonel,
and Flight Engineer T.J. Creamer, an Army colonel, will talk with
U.S. forces while orbiting 220 miles above Earth. Service members
will have the chance to talk with the astronauts about life on the
station, their military careers, and what it is like to live in
space for up to six months.
NASA Television will provide live coverage of the conversations,
with video from aboard the station during the event. A video file
will be available later in the day, with edited footage from both
the station and the service members in Iraq.
