Garth Brooks to Mission Control.
The country star is in Houston visiting NASA for a special edition of #StudioG, a live Facebook video chat with fans that Brooks does each week about upcoming appearances, performances, social media, country music and all things Garth Brooks.
Brooks’ #StudioG at NASA was in the Mission Control room, and he was joined by wife and country music singer Trisha Yearwood.
Brooks got a chance to do a video chat with Expedition 52 Flight Engineers Jack Fischer and Peggy Whitson. They talked to Brooks and Yearwood about life, family and research.
They had a little fun too, with Fisher showing Brooks how fluids is different in space using Tropical Punch. The surface tension faces a big role in space, so liquids form into a sphere.
“We don’t drink out of a cup, because you wouldn’t be able to hold there,” Whitson said.
This all came together when Fischer recently made a post on social media about “The River” as one of his favorite songs.
