A TV special will take viewers out of this world
NEW YORK (AP) — National Geographic Channel is going out of this world for a TV event.
The network on Thursday announced “Live from Space,” a two-hour special to be broadcast live from the International Space Station and from Mission Control in Houston this March.
Poised 250 miles above the Earth’s surface, the ISS makes a global orbit every 90 minutes, meaning this program will take viewers on a trip around the world. The network is promising shots of sunset and sunrise, as well as city lights, lightning and shooting stars.
Viewers will also get a guided tour of the space station and see experiments conducted in the floating laboratory.
“Live from Space” will simulcast on National Geographic Channel in 170 countries, as well as other outlets. No air date was announced.
