Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Life is slowly returning to normal for NASA Astronaut and Vining, Minnesota native Karen Nyberg.

In an interview with WDAY 6 News Wednesday, Karen talked about the tough adjustment to gravity after she landed.

After a rocky re-entry and roller-coaster ride through space, Karen says it took some time to get her balance back.

In fact, NASA does not allow its astronauts to drive cars for several days, following long periods in space.

Karen Nyberg/NASA Astronaut: “Frankly I felt really nauseous and could not walk and that is a fact of gravity and the ride home is pretty dynamic and would have gotten motion sick even without being in no gravity five and a half months.”
