      Hi all!
      Since the ISS is an international project, most of our meetings are actually not in person but are teleconferences, with people talking to each other on the phone at thousands of miles one from another.

      This makes it really interesting, because we might have together Americans, French, Italians, Japanese, Russians, and so on. But on the other hand this is also sometimes difficult, because not seeing each other in person can make it difficult to understand what another person is trying to communicate.
