The image has seen thousands come and go on the UND campus and traveled across the world on student and alumni T-shirts, sweatshirts and sports gear. But the school will cross another frontier this weekend when NASA astronaut and 1994 UND mechanical engineering graduate Karen Nyberg takes a flag bearing the UND logo into space.
Nyberg, 38, is scheduled to lift off Saturday on a 14-day NASA mission to deliver portions of the new Japanese-designed Kibo Laboratory to the International Space Station.
The UND flag Nyberg will carry is a standard issue 3-by-5-foot model provided by the school's facilities department, said Amanda Hvidsten, director of alumni relations with the UND Alumni Association, who made many of the arrangements.
Nyberg has signed the flag, Hvidsten said, and she believes the rest of the seven-person crew has as well. At some point, the flag will make its way back to UND to be put on display, she said.[/i]
