    Hey i was just wondering if i can connect my external hard drive to my airport time capsule to add some more storage space, through the USB port.

    Im overseas right now, but id just wanna know before hand if this is possible.

    Yes, and you can connect several drives to the TC through a USB hub.

    Externally powered 3.5" drives don't need a powered USB hub.
    I had 2 drives hung to my Extreme using just this simple gadget:

    It is best to use a powered hub though. That way you have the flexibility in the future.
