Space Station Crew Member Discusses Life in Space with the NBC “Today” Show

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 36 Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg of NASA discussed life and research on the orbital laboratory with the NBC “Today” Show during an in-flight interview on August 14. Nyberg arrived aboard the station in late May and will remain in orbit until her return to Earth aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in mid-November.

So Hatfield will always be known as Space Bowie, and Nyberg will be remembered as the Space Sassoon Girl…or something.

Drowning in space is something a lot of us thought not even possible.  From his misfortune, many of us learned something.
