Vining astronaut to livecast from space stationPublished 12:28pm Friday, October 4, 2013
Just weeks before she is scheduled to return from a six-month trip, astronaut Karen Nyberg will visit with friends, students and the general public.
Nyberg, along with fellow astronaut Mike Hopkins, will livecast from the International Space Station on Oct. 23 for a question and answer session. Questions must be submitted by Oct. 8
The session will be held at Henning School, but principal Thomas Williams said the public is more than welcome to attend.
Nyberg’s six-month stay at the space station began in May.
She has tried to keep contact with people during the trip, taking pictures from the station and posting them on her Twitter account.
The exact time of the session is not yet known, but NASA has left a window available from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The session will also stream live on NASA’s website.
