Video: Pope Benedict speaks with Astronauts


Compliments of Nasa.gov, is this video.

The Holy Father had an exchange with the astronauts after briefly addressing them.  He expressed his hope for continued improvement for Gabby Giffords, the wife of Commander Mark Kelly.  He then asked some questions of the astronauts.

Interesting what zero gravity does with long hair, eh? I suppose there is no such thing as a bad hair day in space. But, I suspect there is a scary hair day - LOL.

That is really cool, and I like the Holy Father's gentle questions directing the astronauts to think about things of spiritual significance, of prayer and of how to be a positive influence on others. Their answers do not reflect much effort of thought but the nature of the brief and highly coordinated event makes that very difficult and I suspect that the thinking they would do on those questions later might be the more important. It's a pleasant and really very charming exchange.
