The U.S. Army introduced a new TV commercial on January 26 that includes NASA astronaut Col. Tim Kopra.

If you visit GoArmy.com (as the ad suggests) and specifically the Explore the Army feature, you are presented with an animated map of an Army base.

Clicking on the link floating above the base in the sky (titled "Astronaut") takes you to a longer video segment featuring Kopra.

Kopra will launch in June on STS-127 to the International Space Station, where he will join the Expedition 19 crew as flight engineer.

The U.S. Army now has a website where you can submit questions for Col. Tim Kopra to answer while he is aboard the International Space Station.

You can also follow Kopra's mission through updates posted to a Twitter feed and the U.S. Army Astronauts Facebook group.

All times are CT (US)
