      KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- A Sunnyside native is about to be inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. Former shuttle astronaut Bonnie Dunbar will join an elite group during a ceremony in April.


      Dunbar and two others make up the 12th group of their kind to be named to the hall of fame.


      She served as a shuttle mission specialist and payload commander during her time while earning numerous honors.


      That brings the total number of people inducted into the hall of fame to 85.
