3000 Orbits – Life Aboard the International Space Station What happens in space, doesn’t stay in space! Join astronauts Robert Thirsk and Nicole Stott for an afternoon of personal storytelling about their 2009 mission on the International Space Station. In the first hour, blast off with Bob as he gives us the ins and outs — literally — of what it took to rocket up to the ISS from Kazakhstan, then return home in one piece. He’ll share tales from daily life orbiting the Earth as he, Nicole and the crew tackled scientific research, robotic operations, maintenance and repair work. Nicole Stott will join him for the second hour to talk about life after the ISS, the changes and opportunities in space exploration with the advent of SpaceX, Blue Origin, and others, about the exciting cutting edge of space exploration on Venus, Mars, and the Moon.
