Statesville native returns from space

Posted: Updated:
Statesville, NC -

After five months aboard the international space station a Statesville native is welcomed home.

NASA astronaut Dr. Thomas Marshburn came to Mitchell Community College Sunday night to talk about his trip to space. Science club students also had a chance to show off some of their projects. Some even had set off rockets.

Marshburn took part in a five hour unplanned space walk to fix an ammonia leak on the I-S-S.
