Q & A with Navy Astronauts

During recent Facebook Q&A’s, U.S. Navy Capt. Barry “Butch” Wilmore and Cmdr. Reid Wiseman took questions about their Navy careers and NASA experiences.

Below are their video answers recorded at the Pentagon June 24, 2015:

“What was your job in the Navy, and how did it help you as an astronaut?”


“How would you compare your life at the space station to that on a ship on the sea or sub underwater?”


“How does re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere compare to a carrier landing as far as adrenaline rush and perception of danger?”


“What kind of physical therapy/medical needs do you need from the recovery process for your bodies once you return to Earth, and how long does it take to return to “Earth normal”?”


“What tasks are you doing right now on the International Space Station to prepare us for Mars, and do either of you want to go?”


“What is it like seeing Earth through the cupola then going back and seeing how you used to, does it change your life perspective? And what is it like when you first experience gravity again?”


“What is the most popular (ordinary) task to perform in Zero-G?”


“What’s next for both of you?”
