A graduate of the University of Alabama is aboard the International Space Station (ISS) about 250 miles above the Earth after successfully piloting a SpaceX craft.

In his first flight to space, Bob Hines, a NASA astronaut, was responsible for vehicle performance and systems on its journey to the ISS and is now part of a science expedition mission.

Originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Hines earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from UA in 2010.
