LEAGUE CITY  — Before astronaut Kjell Lindgren leaves for the International Space Station, he had to show approximately 40 children how to put together a toy rocket.

Lindgren, who was accepted into the astronaut program in 2009, will leave for his first mission May 2015. Even though he has a heavy training schedule, he said he still tries to make time for educational outreach, which is why he agreed to speak at the Build & Launch a Rocket III event, hosted by Operation Redemption, at Bay Area Baptist Church on Saturday.
