Charlevoix man set to go to space
A northern Michigan man has been chosen to be a part of the crew that goes to the International Space Station next month.
NASA officials said a team of five astronauts is set to launch from the Kennedy space center in Florida. The team will stay on the ISS for six months.
Charlevoix resident Josh Cassada is a NASA astronaut. He said he’s honored to be on the mission.
“We are incredibly grateful and honored to do this job and we couldn't ask for a better crew to do it with uphill downhill and with the rest of expedition 68 on board," said Cassada at a NASA press conference.
The team consists of two members from America, one from Japan, and one from Russia.
