Space Station Crew Discusses Life in Space With NBC News

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 38 Flight Engineers Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio of NASA discussed their recent spacewalks in December to replace a cooling pump, their thoughts on being in orbit over the holidays and their research and exercise regimes with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams during an in-flight interview Jan. 6. Hopkins and Mastracchio are gearing up for the arrival of the Orbital Sciences Corporation's Cygnus cargo ship that will deliver 1.5 tons of provisions and experiments to the station crewmembers in its first commercial resupply mission.
