r @xxShaannonxx The veteran broadcast journalist Soledad O’Brien is going to host Natural Geographic Channel’s Live From Space special on March 14, but she will be doing it safely from Earth. “With more than 25 years of live television experience, Soledad is the perfect partner for this incredibly exciting television moment. We are ecstatic to have her join us to bring to life the thrilling pulse of this live broadcast,” said Nat Geo’s president Howard T. Owens. O’Brien will be hosting the program from Mission Control in Houston, and astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata will be interacting with the viewers from the International Space Station. Live From Space will air for two hours. Its goal is to give viewers a unique perspective on astronaut life and work. O’Brien will also serve as co-executive producer for the program. “It’s an honor to be the host and co-executive producer of such an ambitious and important event. I’m thrilled to further my relationship with my partners at National Geographic to tell the untold story that unfolds above the sky each day,” said O’Brien. “For those that were thrilled by Gravity, I think they’ll be even more impressed by the incredible work being done every day aboard the ISS and the tremendous risks and sacrifices the astronauts undertake. We will get to witness the greatest show beyond earth.”
