The Indiana native who's commanding the International Space Station will make a very long distance video call to the Indiana Statehouse this week.

Astronaut Kevin Ford is scheduled to speak from Earth orbit via video hookup with the Indiana Senate Thursday.

Ford is from Blackford County, and his older brother, David Ford, was a state senator who died of pancreatic cancer in 2008.
