(WDAY TV) -- Otter Tail County's NASA astronaut is preparing to launch into space again, and this time for a long stay.

Karen Nyberg of Vining has been training the last several months in Houston and Russia as she prepares to be a member of NASA's Expedition 36 Crew. She will be flying to the International Space Station during a planned launch in the spring, in Kazakhstan.

Unlike a previous shuttle mission, Nyberg will be spending 6-months in the space station, with an international crew.

We followed her training back in 2008 in Houston, as she prepared for, and then went on her first shuttle launch aboard Discovery from Kennedy Space Center.
