CWN - April 22, 2011
Pope Benedict XVI will place a phone call to astronauts aboard the International Space Station on May 4, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano has disclosed.
The papal phone call will come after the space shuttle Endeavor links with the space station, which is manned by astronauts from Italy, Russia, and the US. It will be the first papal conversation with men in space.
