The International Space Station is a technological marvel that has expanded mankind's understanding of the universe. Despite the space station's cutting edge technology, one famous astronaut says Internet service on board is decidedly low tech.
"It's kind of like a cross between old dial-up and what you might have now with very high speed Internet," astronaut Captain Scott Kelly told CNBC in an interview this week. "It's not ideal, and it varies from time to time in how well it works."
Kelly, 51, is currently in the midst of a mission to spend nearly a full year in space—the longest ever stay for an American. He will return to earth, along with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko, in March of 2016.
