    NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough cast a ballot from the International Space Station in the last few days, 259 miles above Earth.
    Kimbrough is the commander of Expedition 50 aboard the ISS. He left Earth last month and isn’t due back until late February, well after the 45th U.S. president is inaugurated. That means he was unable to take time off work to trek to the polls.
