(FOX NEWS) – Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough and Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson of NASA discussed life and work aboard the orbital complex in an in-flight interview Feb. 17 with the Fox NewsEdge affiliate news distribution service.
Kimbrough arrived to the station last October one month before Whitson, and they are in the midst of their mission of operational activity and scientific research.
Whitson was the first female commander in 2007 and and became the first woman to ever command the space station twice.
Combined with her 2002 mission, has logged the most days in space of any female in NASA history.
The Astronauts answered questions about daily life, number of people on board, how they got there, length of time in space and whether or not they discuss politics aboard a spacecraft filled with Americans, Russians and a French Astronaut.
