Space Station Crew Discusses Life in Space with Astronaut Candidates, Students at Smithsonian

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 38 Flight Engineers Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio of NASA fielded questions about life and research aboard the orbital laboratory with former astronaut Leland Melvin, members of the 2013 Astronaut Candidate class and students from the Washington, D.C. area at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum during an in-flight conversation Jan. 30. Hopkins, who arrived at the station back in September, is scheduled to return to Earth in his Soyuz spacecraft in mid-March, while Mastracchio, who entered the station in November, will remain aboard the outpost until he returns to Earth in another Soyuz craft in mid-May.
