Far Out: How an Astronaut Stays Optimistic

By: Stefanie Schefter

We were over-the-moon excited when we got a chance to speak with Karen Nyberg, a former astronaut who’s spent a total of 180 days in space over the course of her 20-year career with NASA.

Karen told us what it was like to leave her husband and 3-year old son for extended periods of time (hard!), what it was like to see Earth from space (really, really cool!) and so much more about what she learned when she left the planet. 

Tell Us Something Good

Your stories of optimism have shaped and steered Life is Good from day one. THANK YOU and write on!
