[b]Cady Coleman plays flute on space station[/b]
This video presents highlights from in-flight interviews conducted Feb. 9, 2011 with NPR's "All Things Considered" and KHOU-TV, Houston with International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 26 flight engineer Catherine "Cady" Coleman (joined by station commander Scott Kelly and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli).
Coleman speaks about playing her flute in space before giving a short performance.
Coleman has four flutes to pick from aboard the space station.
"I brought my own flute with me but I also brought some other flutes," Coleman told NPR. "I have a penny whistle from Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains and also a very old Irish flute from Matt Molloy of The Chieftains. And I have a flute from Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. So a pretty well-rounded spectrum and I am having a great time up here with them."
When on the ground, Coleman plays flute with the Celtic band Clan Ceili and with Bandella, a folk quartet with fellow astronauts Chris Hadfield and Steve Robinson, and Micki Pettit, wife of astronaut Don Pettit.
