During a recent visit to NASA headquarters astronauts Joe Acaba and Mark Vande Hei sat down for an informal Q&A session with Administrator Jim Bridenstine – and responded to questions from the agency’s social media followers.
The astronauts, who returned from the International Space Station in late February, talked about the station’s role as a platform to help us live and work in space. The cutting-edge research and technology development on the station is helping prepare our astronauts to take the next giant leap in human space exploration. The agency plans to return to the Moon and eventually send humans to Mars and destinations beyond.
