New Delhi: Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg truly thinks of everything, when he says that he wants to reach out to the world by connecting people globally.

This time, he did something out of this world entirely – literally!

Facebook's live video chat with three out of the six astronauts currently residing aboard the International Space Station just got over and needless to say, it was incredibly informative and also pretty entertaining!

The three astronauts who participated in the live chat were Jeff Williams, Tim Kopra and Tim Peake.

Zuckerberg started off by asking the astronauts to introduce themselves, their roles and how long they had been working in outer space.

Mark Zuckerberg also invited questions from space enthusiasts and also those curious enough to find out how things work in a zero-gravity environment.

A couple of questions that we found interesting were, “Do food and drinks taste differently in space?”, or “Is astronaut ice-cream a real thing?” and “What do you do for fun?”

The picture perfect moment from the live chat was the somersault that the astronauts did obligingly when Zuckerberg asked them if they fly and flip around the space station. Also, the cartwheeling microphone definitely deserves a mention.

The live video chat was aired on NASA TV, as well as on Zuckerberg's personal Facebook timeline.

If you missed out on the interaction, then we won't spoil the fun for you and for those of you who did manage to catch the live chat, you can watch it again.
