Wisconsin Native Ready to Go to Space Again

Astronaut Jeff Williams is ready for his next mission in space. The Wisconsin native, who grew up in the small town of Winter, will leave Kazakhstan on March 18 for the International Space Station.

This mission will be his fourth space flight and third long-duration stay on the ISS. The first space flight was back in 2000. This time he's scheduled to spend five months aboard the ISS.

With less than three weeks before his departure, Williams talked with CBS 58 Morning News Anchors Jessica Tighe and Kate Chappell from his training base in Star City, Russia.
