Pope calls space, takes small step for Vatican-Russian ties

Pope Francis connects to the crew aboard the International Space Station from the Vatican, Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017. Pope Francis’ hookup Thursday will mark the second papal phone call to space: Pope Benedict XVI rang the space station in 2011, and peppered its residents with questions about the future of the planet and the environmental risks it faced.
