While this is the first livestream from space for Facebook, the International Space Station itself has a continuous livestream. The stream switches from internal views of the crew, to external views of the earth. Audio contact between the ground based mission control, and the crew of the International Space Station can be heard in the livestream. The space station orbits the earth once every 90 minutes, and every 45 minutes a sunrise or a sunset can be seen.
Facebook is coordinating with NASA to make this livestream possible. Mark Zuckerberg will be asking questions from the Facebook Headquarters at Menlo Park, California in the United States. The announcement can be seen on this page. If you are interested in asking a question to the astronauts, that can be done on the event page for the livestream. Just reply to the post with a question, and it may get picked up.
