Did you spot Indian moon lander: Brad Pitt to ISS

Wednesday, 18 September 2019 | PTI | Los Angeles

When Brad Pitt rang up the International Space Station (ISS), he had a list of questions for NASA astronaut Nick Hague that ranged from India’s Chandrayaan-2 Moon mission, life in zero gravity conditions and most importantly, if he had bested George Clooney as a cosmonaut.              

The ISS crew previewed the actor’s space drama, “Ad Astra,” which has garnered one of the best reviews of his career and is generating Oscar buzz, along with his other screen outing “Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood”.

“Station, this is Brad, how do you hear me?” the actor asked upon receiving confirmation from NASA for a voice check and in the 20-minute call, carried by NASA TV on Monday, he covered a lot of topics on space exploration.

To which Hague replied, “Hey Brad, this is Nick. I’ve got you loud and clear. Welcome to the International Space Station.”

Pitt continued the conversation with a question on India’s Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram, as part of the country’s moon mission. The ISRO was unsuccessful in its attempt to land the Vikram module on the Moon’s uncharted south pole.
