MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After one Minnesota city got its picture from 200 miles up, it’s another city’s turn.
You may remember earlier this week when astronaut Kjell Lindgren tweeted a picture of Minneapolis from the International Space Station, orbiting the earth. Now, St. Paul residents got a photo of their own:
Lindgren completed his residency in emergency medicine at Hennepin County Medical Center in 2005. The Taiwanese-born astronaut is on his first space mission, Expedition 44, which objectives include “human research, biology and biotechnology, astrophysics research, physical science investigations and education activities”, according to NASA.
