U2 Can Be In Space!

U2 pay a visit to Mission Control in Houston to make a call to the International Space Station. The communication delay makes the conversation a little awkward at times, but it's an entertaining exchange.

So, is NASA getting all trendy now?

Well, in my opinion NASA needs to get a lot more trendy than it has been over the years. I find the whole business of space exciting and fascinating to geek level, but to the average person it is presented as somewhat boring at times. There is a vast difference between the Hollywood production image of space and the reality, and I support any attempt to make it more mainstream accessible. This is a good attempt, but even the kids looked bored at times - and kids love space!

Keep it up, NASA - and maybe look into hiring a media guru.

Happy Spacing Spacers!
