Watch ISS Astronauts Geek Out About Star Trek

By Chris Mills on at

The crew aboard the ISS conducted a long interview with radio station WTOP recently, covering everything from daily life aboard the ISS, to their Star Trek childhoods.

Although there's a whole host of interesting stuff in the interview — details about how ISS experiments don't always go to plan, for example — the highlight is Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti describing how she grew up a Star Trek fan. The expedition commander, Terry Virts, also seems to be a Trekker, so you can be sure the ISS is in good hands. [NASA]
