Benedict XVI will call astronauts in space

The crew includes astronauts from the U.S, Russia and Italy. But the pope will give a special address to Italian Roberto Vittori. During the conversation, the colonel will be wearing a silver pendant given to him by the pope. Benedict the XVI also plans to speak with Paolo Nespoli, an engineer at the space station.
