GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Minnesota's NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg is starting a six month stay in the International Space Station.
She took off from Kazakhstan at the end of May, and she wasn't the only Minnesotan there.
"Astronaut Abby" Harrison was at the launch, watching Nyberg head into space.
Harrison joined KARE 11 Sunrise to talk about what it was like.
