Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will be taking connectivity to a new level as he will speak with three astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on June 1. This June 1 Mark Zuckerberg will host a 20-minute livestream with NASA astronauts Tim Kopra and Jeff Williams along with the ESA's (European Space Agency's) Tim Peake. During this live video chat, Mark Zuckerberg will ask questions submitted on NASA’s Facebook page by its users.

Some of the interesting questions to be asked from astronauts include: How long will it take for foods to rot in ISS? Will the ISS ever become privately owned when decommissioned ?

International Space Station (ISS) serves as the world's leading laboratory for conducting microgravity research and is the primary platform for testing in space to enable human and robotic exploration of destinations beyond low-Earth orbit.
