Another Mainer Is Ready To Head Into Space
BANGOR, Maine - The Challenger Learning Center is ensuring that Maine astronaut Chris Cassidy heads into space with well-wishes from his home state. The organization is asking for messages, pictures and videos to be posted on its Facebook page. Those messages will be shared with Cassidy before he blasts off Thursday.
It will be Cassidy's third mission into space. The York native and Navy SEAL will join another Mainer, Caribou native Jessica Meir, on the International Space Station for about a week before she returns to Earth.
