This afternoon, at 3:57 Maryland time, a Russian spacecraft will launch from Kazakhstan headed for the Intl Space Station. One of the astronauts on board will be Cockeysville native Reid Wiseman, a Commander in the Navy who was chosen as one of nine astronauts in the class of 2009. He’ll be conducting experiments and working on repairs of the space station. He’s been training in Russia for more than two years. Tom Hall spoke with Commander Wiseman about two and a half weeks ago from the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia.
