The six-member crew aboard the International Space station, or ISS, will be tuning in live to the Super Bowl this year for the first time in history, thanks to the miracles of modern technology.
Only two of the crew members are American—commander Kevin Ford and flight engineer Tom Marshburn—but Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield and Russian cosmonauts Evgeny Tarelkin, Oleg Novitskiy and Roman Romanenko also expressed a desire to watch the San Francisco 49ers duke it out with the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
