      @sciencedude, yes, there is Internet in space. And, as you can imagine, the astronauts aboard the ISS are very happy about this. Not only are they able to stay in email contact with their friends and family, but can contact them directly via voice-over-IP telephony and even video chats. Some astronauts are also very active on social media, and can directly post to Facebox, Twitter, and Co. Dan (GSOC GC)
