JFK Library to host live chat with astronauts
BOSTON (AP) -- The JFK Library and Museum will host a live chat via satellite with two astronauts on the International Space Station.
Boston audience members will be able to see and hear astronauts Suni Williams and Joe Acaba as the two participate in the interview from space on Aug. 27.
Williams, who went to high school in Needham, Mass., will do her fifth walk in space a few days later to repair one of the space station's main electrical units.
Library officials say the event, co-sponsored by NASA, is among those being held to commemorate President John F. Kennedy's dedication to space exploration.
