Obama makes a (really) long distance call

At around 5:03 PM Eastern yesterday Barack Obama placed a call to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. I ended up catching it live on NASA TV yesterday because I had heard about it ahead of time. Obama even asked the crew about "Robonaut" but whoever it was that prepped him on the interview forgot to tell him that that robot won't be used by the crew for a few months. I wouldn't call it a gaffe per say because that is really not something Obama should know but for whatever reason the White House decided to edit that part of the call away from the clip they uploaded. For what its worth the video that NASA put up has that part of the call.
