Pope chats with astronauts on space station Endeavor
Catholic World News - May 23, 2011
Pope Benedict XVI placed a satellite call to astronauts aboard the space station Endeavor on May 21, and questioned them about the insights they gained from their “extraordinary observation point.”
From his office in the apostolic palace, the Pope asked a series of questions about how the astronauts perceived the earth and its beauty as well as its problems. At the end of the short exchange he thanked them for their perspectives, promised his prayers, and congratulated them on their contributions to scientific progress.
