NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly Hosts Third Rock Radio From ISS
  • Astronaut Scott Kelly will be the Host of Third Rock Radio from aboard the ISS

Astronaut Scott Kelly will be the distinguished host of a media platform known as Third Rock radio from aboard the ISS. He is all ready and raring to go for this new responsibility assigned to him.

NASA’s astronaut Scott Kelly is about to complete his year long sojourn in outer space. As a member of the ISS team, Scott performs his duties with diligence and alacrity.

Now it seems that this hard worker will finally be getting a chance to chill out for a change. He has already posted pics on twitter and played a game of ping pong aboard the ISS. Kelly’s mission is about to end in March of this year.  

In memory of his capacity for enduring the isolated and tough conditions of outer space, NASA’s main radio station titled Third Rock will be welcoming Scott on board its platform.

He will be hosting a two hour long show daily. The express intent of this is to lend everybody on earth an insight into his year in space. The show begins at 5 pm on Thursday, February 18th.

Small segments of Kelly’s stories will feature in the works. How Kelly was selected alongside Mikhail Kornienko and how exactly he put up with the zero gravity environment of space will be topics that are up for discussion. 

This “Year in Space” Series will hold a lot of meaning for other astronauts at NASA. It will serve as a preview of how the experience is like in outer space.

People who want to apply to NASA will get a feel for the difficult conditions and only those who have the guts and courage will come forward.

Third Rock was launched about five years ago. It was a step in the right direction. The general public and citizens who wanted to become astronauts would get educated on the ins and outs of NASA.  

Innovation is what this is all about. NASA is looking forward to expand its domain. Science should be accessible to the common man. So Third Rock Radio is having Scott Kelly as the host in order to inspire and encourage the ordinary people to dream big and be proud of their nation.

NASA may seem a pretty serious organization. However, the public can rest assured since Third Rock Radio will feature Indie Rock songs for the listening pleasure of music aficionados.
