NASA has been on a roll with Google+ lately, hosting several video Hangouts with astronauts live from outer space. But today, things will be coming back down to Earth for a change, and The Verge will be in attendance. Join us here Thursday, May 23 starting just before 3 PM Eastern for a special Google+ Hangout with recently returned space station Commander Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency, and NASA astronauts Kevin Ford and Tom Marshburn. You may recall Hadfield from his numerous YouTube videos of experiments on the station, guitar solos and killer David Bowie "Space Oddity" cover. We'll be sure to ask him where he learned to hit the high notes, and offer sympathies to his colleagues who may have been trying to sleep during his music videos. Watch the Hangout live below or on Google+.

Seriously, though, we will also ask the astronauts about life on the station, the science experiments they performed while aboard, and space exploration's future in the public and private sector. NASA is fielding questions for the Hangout on its Google+ page and on Twitter under the hashtag #askAstro. You can also go ahead and leave questions you want us to ask in the comments below, and we'll be sure to pass a few along during the Hangout.
