The only Texas voter in space may end up voting for president from the International Space Station.
NASA astronaut Kate Rubins said Thursday that she doesn’t know yet whether she’ll return to Earth in late October as planned. The Russians have delayed the next crew launch for technical reasons.
Rubins said she got an absentee ballot before she blasted off in July. Her home is Houston, Texas, but in this case, the absentee ballot lists her address as “low-Earth orbit.”
A professional virus hunter before becoming an astronaut, the 37-year-old scientist became the first person to perform full-blown DNA decoding, or sequencing, in space.
Rubins said she thinks it’s incredibly important for us to vote in all of our elections.
