Minnesota native Karen Nyberg, 43, is now on her second trip to the International Space station. She was aboard a Soyuz spacecraft that lifted off from Kazakhstan on May 28, headed for the International Space Station. She became the 50th woman in space during her first trip to the ISS in 2008 – before she became a mother.
