Former Peabody student to walk in space

Kansas-born astronaut Nick Hague launched Thursday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station. It was a six-hour flight. With him were astronaut Christine Koch and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin.

Hague, who attended Peabody Elementary School, is expected to speak to an audience of students and community members at Peabody-Burns High School gymnasium from the space station May 10.

Hague and a fellow astronaut are scheduled for spacewalks March 22 and April 8.
