CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Statesville man, who also happens to be an astronaut, is traveling in space right now.

This is Tom Marshburn's second flight. He did construction work on the space station back in 2009.

He's been in space for about two weeks now, and says technology helps keep him connected to North Carolina. 

Marshburn says the astronauts can circle the earth in about 90 minutes-- pretty incredible.
   
He believes space travel for entertainment will become a reality in the next five to 10 years.
