Because the space shuttle Endeavour launched into space last week, NASA Astronaut Mark Polansky and the STS-127 crew aboard invited people to ask them questions about space exploration. Videos came in from all around the world, and many of the questions came from kids, curious to learn more about what it's actually like in space. Now that they're finally in orbit, the STS-127 crew is answering these questions via video and posting them on the NASA YouTube channel.
In this video, Polansky answers 13-year-old Rio Morales's question: "What's the best thing about being in space?"
