NASA and Microsoft announced Project Sidekick Thursday, a new experiment that aims to bring Microsoft's holographic visuals to astronauts on the International Space Station. NASA said, The ISS astronauts will use Sidekick in two different modes: Remote Expert Mode and Procedure Mode. Remote Expert Mode uses Skype, to help astronauts aboard the space station communicate with ground operators.
