Two-Hour Live Show to be aired on Friday at 8 pm on National Geographic Channel

'Live from Space', a spectacular two-hour television show consisting of two documentaries, will air from Mission Control in Houston on National Geographic Channel on Friday at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. The show will feature live interviews with two astronauts: Rick Mastracchio and Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, who are currently working on research projects at the International Space Station (ISS).

O'Brien, host of the live show, said the main aim of the show is to tell viewers about the fully guided tour of the ISS and the challenges faced by astronauts at the ISS.

Researchers cited an incident, which took place last summer with Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano, when his helmet was filled with a half-gallon of water during a spacewalk for repairing the spacecraft. The live show will broadcast on NGC in 170 countries and on Channel 4 in the U.K.

O'Brien said the ISS is about 250 miles above surface of earth and orbits around the earth in 90 minutes at speed of 17,500 miles per hour. People will be able to see incredible shots of the planet from sunset and sunrise, to city lights and green aurora and from lightning storms and shooting stars.

Also, the two-hour live show illustrates the lifestyle of astronauts living in months of spacewalk like the way they sleep upside down, how they maintain personal hygiene and the way they use their toilet.

This show is the first ever show broadcasted that demonstrates the real-world value of the science conducted on the floating laboratory.
