Promise.all() in node

I am trying to implement Promise.all() in node following this course. But all I'm getting is => Promise{pending}. The code seems to be working fine in the console browser but not on node.js

Any ideas why? My code is below. Many thanks!

const XMLHttpRequest = require("xmlhttprequest").XMLHttpRequest;
const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();

// variables
const astrosUrl = 'http://api.open-notify.org/astros.json';
const wikiUrl = 'https://en.wikipedia.org/api/rest_v1/page/summary/';

getJSON = (url) => {
  return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest(url);
    xhr.open('GET', url);
    xhr.onload = () => {
      if(xhr.status === 200){
        let data = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);
        reject(new Error(xhr.statusText));

//get wiki data
getProfiles = (data) =>{
  const profiles = data.people.map(person => {
    return getJSON(wikiUrl+formatName(person.name));
 return Promise.all(profiles);

//handle data
handleData = (data) =>{

formatName = (name)=>{
  return name.split(" ").join("_");

//run sequence
.catch(error => console.log(error.message))
