CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA is rolling out the International Space Station's red carpet for Tom Cruise.
Administrator Jim Bridenstine said before Wednesday's planned launch of two astronauts aboard a SpaceX rocket that Elon Musk's company is already getting customers eager to fly into orbit.
Bridenstine says he doesn't admit it often, but he was inspired to become a Navy pilot after watching Cruise's blockbuster movie "Top Gun."
He says if Cruise can make a new movie in space that inspires the next generation Elon Musk, "NASA is all in."
He's leaving it to Cruise and SpaceX to provide a rundown on the upcoming mission.
