Missouri astronaut Bob Behnken (banken) had a front-row seat this (Friday) morning to watch his wife launch 250 miles into space. His wife, Megan McArthur, is piloting the same space capsule he traveled in during a historic mission last year. Behnken, of St. Louis County, urges Missourians to travel to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for a future space launch…

Today’s launch was scheduled to liftoff at 4:49 a.m. from Cape Canaveral, Florida. McArthur and three other astronauts will be in space for about six months.
