Lt. Col. Andrew Morgan always dreamed about going to space. In July 2019, his dream becomes reality.
Morgan, who has always called New Castle home due to deep family ties in the community despite never having lived there, will be living and working on the International Space Station, orbiting 245 miles above the Earth's surface, as part of a seven-month mission.
He was selected by NASA to become an astronaut in 2013, with the expectation of going to space after spending close to a decade training. Morgan achieved a space mission in six years.
