Purdue Grad Headed on Mission to Space

A Purdue graduate is headed on a mission to space.

36-year-old Loral O’Hara joins twelve other graduates in the first class to graduate from the NASA Astronaut Program.

O’Hara graduated from Purdue’s School of Aerospace Engineering in 2009.

Her first mission involves going up to space to be a communicator between the astronauts in orbit and the ones on earth.

O’Hara is set to start her mission in February.
