Several questions will be selected to be answered live from orbit by 
the crew during a special event that will be broadcast on NASA 
Television. STS-128 astronaut Jose Hernandez, one crew member who 
will answer questions, is providing insights on his training in both 
English and Spanish via Twitter. To follow him, visit:

Shuttle Discovery's 13-day flight will deliver supplies and equipment 
to the station and a new crew member. The station equipment includes 
new science hardware and experiments, additional sleep quarters, an 
air purification system and the COLBERT treadmill. 
Astronaut Rick Sturckow will command Discovery. He will be joined by 
Pilot Kevin Ford and Mission Specialists Pat Forrester, Hernandez, 
Danny Olivas and European Space Agency astronaut Christer Fuglesang. 

NASA astronaut Nicole Stott will fly to the complex aboard Discovery 
to begin a scheduled three-month mission as a station resident, 
replacing NASA's Tim Kopra, who will return home on Discovery. 
STS-128 is the first shuttle mission to feature two Latino astronauts 
among the crew. Hernandez and Olivas are both of Mexican descent.
