Nyberg Returns

Nov 12, 2013 at 6:59 am

University of North Dakota graduate Karen Nyberg has returned from her most recent trip to space.
 
     A Russian space capsule carrying Nyberg and two other astronauts returned to Earth on Monday from the International Space Station in a flawless landing in Kazakhstan. They brought the Sochi Olympic torch with them.
 
     All three were to be taken for tests at a medical tent at the landing site, then flown to the city of Karaganda for a welcome ceremony.
 
     Nyberg is from Vining, Minn. She graduated from UND in 1994, and went on to join NASA and take part in a 2008 mission on the space shuttle Discovery. She blasted off into space again last May.
