NASA astronaut Kate Rubins said on Friday that she plans to cast her next vote from space – more than 200 miles above Earth. Rubins is just outside Moscow in Star City, Russia, preparing with two cosmonauts for a mid-October launch and a six-month stay at the International Space Station.
"I think it's really important for everybody to vote," Rubins told The Associated Press. "If we can do it from space, then I believe folks can do it from the ground, too."
"It's critical to participate in our democracy," Rubins said. "We consider it an honor to be able to vote from space."
