Pope Francis has had a quick chat with the astronauts on the International Space station.

During his chat he talked about love and highlighted the need to look after the environment. The Pope Francis also stressed the absolute compatibility of faith and science, and the compatibility of the Big Bang theory with God’s “divine act of creation.”

It is the second time that the Pope has called space: Pope Benedict XVI rang the space station in 2011, and peppered its residents with questions about the future of the planet and the environmental risks it faced.

The space station currently is home to six astronauts: Italian Paolo Nespoli, Americans Joseph Acaba, Mark Vande Hei and Randy “Komrade” Bresnik, as well as Russian cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin and Sergey Ryazanskiy.
