Wisconsin astronaut heads to international space station next week


UNDATED (WSAU) An astronaut from northern Wisconsin will begin his third trip in space next Wednesday. Jeffrey Williams of Winter will board a Soyuz rocket which will blast off from a desert base in Kazakhstan. Two days later, they’ll get to the International Space Station, where Williams will spend his second six-month tour of duty.

He says the isolation of Earth’s orbit is made easier by contact with his family in Houston – and from reading Bible passages.

His favorite verse is from the book of Job, and it reads: “He hangs the Earth on nothing.” Williams says it dispels old myths that the Earth was flat, suspended, or sitting on top of pillars. After orbiting the Earth many times, Williams says he can truly attest that the Earth hangs on nothing.
