LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A NASA astronaut will speak live from space with Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr. this week.

Jeff Williams and his crewmates are staying 172 days aboard the International Space Station. They launched into space in March.

Williams is a supporter of the seminary and has done talks on campus.

The astronaut will speak to Mohler at 10 a.m. Tuesday during the seminary’s chapel service in Alumni Memorial Chapel. The event is open to the seminary community and will be livestreamed at www.sbts.edu/live .

A release from the seminary says Williams recently surpassed Scott Kelly’s record of 521 days to become the American with the most cumulative days in space. The current mission is Williams’ fourth spaceflight.
