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.
