Transcript for Sara talks with International Space Station astronauts
I hope you're as excited as I am. I'm in the control room. We're about to check in with three astronauts at the international space station. Station, this is Sara Haines, how do you hear me? Hi, Sara, we have you loud and clear. Welcome aboard the space station. Oh, my gosh, this is so cool. I'm here today talking with nasa astronauts and flight engineers. Nick Hague, Anne Mcclain and Christina Koch. Welcome to the show. Now, what time is it there? We are on gmt. So it's just after 1:00 in the afternoon. Oh, so you do have time up there. Okay, now, it's safe to say that none of us have ever been to space, how do you guys shower? So, controlling water up here is a little difficult. So, we basically wet a towel and take a washcloth bath and the water goes everywhere. We drop some curtains down around us so it catches the water, and slowly that water dries up over the day and is reclaimed by our water system so that we can drink it later on. That's amazing. And this was Christina and Anne, this was your first space flight, what was running through your mind right as it launched? For me, I was very calm. You know, we do so much training for that day. It's almost hard to wrap your mind around the fact that you're sitting on top of a rocket. As the countdown comes down, you hear the engines rumbling. Knowing what you're sitting on top of, it's pretty incredible and remarkable experience. Do you guys really eat that dried out food? Yes, we sure do. All of our meals are either rehydrated or in a thermo stabilize packaging. They're actually pretty good. I've enjoyed them so far. I kind of like the fact that I don't have to roll up the my sleeves too much in the kitchen to prepare it. It's a pretty quick way of Is there anything you miss eating? Because you guys are up there for like six months. Yeah, I'm on month four and, you know, surprising I don't miss things but how much I appreciate different things. Nick was able to bring up some pizza fixings. We had pizza night last night. When we had pizza last night, I guess I missed that. We miss out on textures. We can'to crumbling, anything that's kind of crisp we don't have up here. But honestly, we have such a variety of food up here that I haven't found myself missing anything. Just need to know that you're well fed up there. This was supposed to be the all-female space walk. But it got cancelled because of a suit that didn't fit. Who made the call? That was my recommendation, and actually, so Nick and I went out the door last week and did a space walk and at the time the suit that I was wearing fit perfectly. I was very happy in it. Nick was happy in the suit he was wearing. We didn't want to make any changes. I was planning on changing sizes on the second suit. Because everything went so well on the first one, we realized that we don't need to inject any additional unknowns that's as important and that can be as dangerous as this space walk. Nick and I swapped. Instead, he and Christina went on Friday. They did an amazing job. The right team for the job. I'll be looking to going out the hatch next week. I know you can't see this right now. But since we do like to plan ahead and you've got me looking out for you right now, we have a "Strahan & Sara" size medium spacesuit that we're sending up with an intern. It should arrive in about five to seven days. If my math is correct, which it probably isn't, so just wait for it. You guys are all set. It's going to look great. Can you guys do any cool space tricks for me? Can you flip around or play with gravity for a second here, or the lack thereof? Oh, this is amazing. It's like you've done this before. Is she always the Guinea pig? Give me a second, now I'm dizzy. The launch was fine. It's the flipping. Now I just have to ask you, what do you do for fun? You guys are up there for months at a time. You guys got to have a game, taboo, heads up, charades, floating charades, what do you guys do when to refill your fun tank? Great question. It's a combination of group activities together and taking some time to look out the window and see the Earth and how beautiful it is going by. Keeping in touch with our loved ones on Earth. When we get together as a group, we like to have movie nights. We like to do group dinners. Pizza dinners. It's a great time. Well, thank you guys. Anne, Christina, Nick, thank you for taking the time. I know you got a lot of work to do up there but we really appreciate you being here, or there, with us. Right now. Good luck. We're cheering you on. How did I do? Was it good?
