National Geographic Channel is going out of this world for a TV event.

The network on Thursday announced “Live from Space,” a two-hour special to be broadcast live from the International Space Station and from Mission Control in Houston this March.

Poised 250 miles above the Earth’s surface, the ISS makes a global orbit every 90 minutes, meaning this program will take viewers on a trip around the world. The network is promising shots of sunset and sunrise, as well as city lights, lightning and shooting stars.

Viewers will also get a guided tour of the space station and see experiments conducted in the floating laboratory.

Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.

“Live from Space” will simulcast on National Geographic Channel in 170 countries, as well as other outlets. No air date was announced.
