US Astronaut Kate Rubins who just began a six month stay aboard the International Space Station casts her ballot from space on Thursday.
and it's Yeah, and to me it's a big night, really difficult to see what's happened worldwide and then close at home. So my heart really goes out to everybody that's been dealing with this, um, and actually lived through most of it. I just launched a few days. There's been there's legislation passed a number of years ago to allow astronauts to vote in space. I think a lot of astronauts do this. They feel that it's very important. Um, it's critical to participate in our democracy. We considered an honor to be able to vote from space and so way fill out a form and we vote via absentee ballot on. I plan on doing that in November. I think it's really important for everybody to vote. And if we could do it from space, uh, then I believe folks can do it from the ground, too.
