Ever wanted someone in space to answer your questions about life in orbit? Now, with the help of Google+ hangouts, and NASA, you’ll have your chance!
This first-ever event for NASA will connect fans of space exploration with the International Space Station on February 22nd. By utilizing the Google+ Hangout technology, NASA will connect fans with astronauts living and working on the ISS, orbiting 240 miles above the Earth.
I tested out the equipment for remote operation of my observatory (Serenity Valley Observatory).
This is just a test stream from the telescope.
In the test I had the scope on the moon, Jupiter, and M45. Enjoy!
