Ever wanted to hangout with astronauts? Sure you have.

Well, today’s your lucky day. Google and NASA are hosting a Google+ Hangout with three astronauts that are currently stationed on the International Space Station. The Hangout begins at 7:30 a.m. PT / 10:30 a.m. ET and should last an hour.

NASA astronauts Kevin Ford and Tom Marshburn and Canadian astronaut (and the best Facebook photo-taker ever) Chris Hadfield will be on hand to answer questions and talk about their experiences.

NASA is going to mostly select the questions in advance, but you can still submit questions while the Hangout is in progress through Google+, Facebook, and Twitter using the hashtag “#AskAstro.”

The video above will be live soon with the Hangout.
