National Geographic and NASA are teaming up to take us in orbit around the world in a two-hour global television event called “Live from Space”. Explore Earth from the International Space Station like you have never done before!
On March 14, 2014, the National Geographic Society, in association with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), will be presenting its special “Live from Space” at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
The special will be broadcasting in real-time (live) from the $100-billion International Space Station (ISS) and the Mission Control Center (MCC) in Houston, Texas. 
National Geographic says, “You've never seen our planet quite like this before.”
The show, hosted by Soledad O’Brien, will take us into orbit about the Earth with NASA astronaut and ISS flight engineer Rick Mastracchio and Japanese astronaut and ISS flight engineer Koichi Wakata.
Mastracchio and Wakata, part of the ISS Expedition 38 crew, will be joining us live at almost 250 miles (402 kilometers) above the Earth's surface and traveling at an average speed of about 17,500 miles (28,225 kilometers) per hour, while NASA astronaut Mike Massimo will be joining us live from Houston’s Mission Control Center.
Mastracchio and Wakata will show us how they work in space, exercise at the ISS, conduct experiments, and even demonstrate how they use the toilet in microgravity (probably not the actual event) while in orbit about the Earth. They will also talk with TV viewers while the show airs live for two-hours.
National Geographic states, “From space, Mastracchio and Wakata will give viewers a fully guided tour, showing us how they live for months in microgravity. They’ll conduct never-before-broadcast experiments that demonstrate the real-world value of the science conducted on the floating laboratory.”
“Plus get ready for stunning shots of Earth, from sunset and sunrise, to city lights and green aurora, to lightning storms and shooting stars. You've never seen our planet like this before.”
