NASA astronauts are streaming from outer space live Wednesday, Facebook Live that is, from the International Space station at 12:55 p.m. ET.
 
The first of June sees a first for social media.
 
Space's digital floor will open for a historic chat and questions from Facebook users, hosted by Mark Zuckerberg. Though Facebook is asking the curious to RSVP first and post their questions on the event's Facebook page .
 
This page posts likely questions, including these:
 
  • "What is it like to live and work in microgravity orbiting the Earth?"
  • "What sorts of out-of-this-world science is underway in the space station’s laboratories?"
Tune in to tuning outside this world.
