NASA astronaut Kate Rubins points to the International Space Station’s “voting booth” where she cast her vote from space this month. This is actually Rubins’ second time to vote from low-Earth orbit, having cast her first vote from space in 2016 when she was an Expedition 48-49 crew member.

Voting in space has been possible since 1997 when a bill passed to legally allow voting from space in Texas. Since then, several NASA astronauts have exercised this civic duty from orbit.

美国宇航局宇航员凯特·鲁宾斯指着国际空间站的“投票亭”,她本月在太空中投票。这实际上是鲁宾斯第二次在近地轨道上投票,她第一次在太空投票是在2016年,当时她是第48-49远征队的成员。

自从1997年一项允许在德克萨斯州进行太空投票的法案通过以来,太空投票就成为可能。从那时起,美国宇航局的几名宇航员就在轨道上履行了这项公民义务。了解更多关于宇航员如何在轨道上投票的信息:https://www.nasa.gov/feature/astronauts-to vote-in-space
