NASA TV Airs High-Def Day in the Life of a Space Station Astronaut
 
 
HOUSTON -- NASA Television will provide a high-definition glimpse of life in space with a special Video File to be broadcast beginning May 22.

During his final weeks aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Garrett Reisman has filmed many daily activities in orbit that are anything but routine. A compilation of Reisman's video diaries will be broadcast in high definition, or HD, beginning at 4 p.m. CDT, Thursday, May 22. The footage also will air Friday, May 23, and Tuesday, May 27, from 5 to 8 a.m., 12 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. each day.

The special NASA TV Video File also will be broadcast in standard-definition on NASA TV immediately following the regularly scheduled daily Video File broadcasts.

Reisman, a New Jersey native, has been serving as a flight engineer and NASA science officer aboard the station since arriving on space shuttle mission STS-123 in March. He will return to Earth on the STS-124 flight, targeted to launch to the station on May 31.
