Sunnyside native and former NASA astronaut Dr. Bonnie Dunbar will join an elite group of American space heroes as she's inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame later this month.

More than 30 legendary astronauts and space icons will be present during the star-studded ceremony at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Saturday, April 20th.

Dunbar, who served as a shuttle mission specialist and payload commander, brings the number of space explorers enshrined in the Hall of Fame to 85.
