Not only is Jessica Meir from Maine, she's from one of my favorite parts of Maine- Aroostook County! Originally from Caribou, Jessica left home and followed her dreams of becoming an astronaut. She's been training for quite some time for this mission over in Russia (collusion!!) and will be blasting off into the great unknown on the 25th of this month. Check out the video from WABI.
