iReport Interview: Ask an astronaut

Have you ever wanted the chance to interview an astronaut? Do you have burning questions about space exploration that you’re dying to have answered? Here is your chance!



CNN iReport is doing our first-ever iReport Interview from outer space, and we want you to be a part of it.



Steve Swanson has been an astronaut for 16 years, and he’s ready to answer your questions about the experience. Swanson will serve as commander of Expedition 40 to the International Space Station and spend a total of six months in space, returning to Earth in September 2014.



Did we mention that he’ll be answering your questions from space? Yeah, it’s pretty rad.


UPDATE: Check out the final video here!



Upload your video questions (please keep them under 20 seconds if possible and shoot them horizontally) for Swanson, and you could see him answer them on CNN! The deadline for videos is May 16.


Submitting from a mobile device? Please use the CNN app or email your video to to upload to this assignment.
