NASA and Star Trek Into Darkness Converge in Cool Google+ Hangout

Posted by monique On May - 20 - 2013 0 Comment

NASA is routinely thought of as the our precursor to the fictional Starfleet Academy, and recently, astronauts interacted with “Star Trek Into Darkness” stars to discuss the intersection between “Star Trek” and NASA’s current programs.

Astronaut Chris Cassidy on the International Space Station and astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren connected with writer/producer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho through Google+ to talk about how “Star Trek” and NASA are connected along with what happens in zero gravity, if any of the actors would want to go into space, which captain is Eve’s favorite and more.

We’ve got the highlights embedded below, but if you want to see the full 56 minute chat, we’ve also got that below the post as well.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” is currently in theaters now.

“In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.”
