"I see the Moon, and the Moon sees me.” Watching the Moonrise from the Earth, I am reminded of the song sung to babies for generations, and I think of the generations to come that will call the Moon home. #Artemis

You use them for sandwiches, we use them as tool bags! On @iss these clear plastic bags help us work efficiently by keeping items from floating away, while allowing us to see what’s inside. #wednesdaywisdom #lifeinspace #lifehacks

Been working on the @jaxajp Space Moss experiment recently! It compares mosses grown on @iss with those grown on Earth to determine how microgravity affects its growth, development, & other characteristics. These plants only need a small area for growth – an advantage for their potential use in space & future bases on the Moon or Mars.

Said goodbye to Progress 72 today to make room for 73P showing up on Wednesday. Caught this shot of it during reentry. It looked like a big firework that lasted minutes – flickering, sparking, and pulsing with brightness before it faded into the darkness.

‪Good morning from @iss. Our planet is a beauty.‬

AstroHague

‪It was a great day to capture a #Dragon🐉 ⁣ ⁣ @astro_christina and I captured the visiting vehicle using station’s robotic arm Canadarm2. Can’t wait to unpack the 5,000+ pounds of research, equipment, cargo and supplies. It’s going to be a busy weekend on @iss!

AstroHague

Just got a present in my care package on the Soyuz! It’s a magazine from July 4, 1969 signed by @astromichaelcollins wishing me all the best. I couldn’t thank him enough. He's up here on @iss with us and his legacy continues to inspire. #Apollo50th

‪#OTD 50 years ago, the #Apollo11 crew had successfully landed on the moon. Their return flight home offered them a view of the moon similar to this one I’ve witnessed on @iss. Which one do you think was taken during the Apollo mission? #Apollo50th ‬

AstroHague

‪Chasing @iss...🚀‬⁣ ⁣ ‪Today’s launch, exactly 50 years after the Apollo moon landing, marks space exploration as a transcending time, crossing borders, and continuing to inspire giant leaps! Standing by for docking to station...‬⁣ ⁣ ‪#Apollo50th ‬

‪Last night as a crew of 3. ‬⁣ ⁣ ‪Looking forward to greeting the remainder of my Expediton 60 crewmates @astrodrewmorgan, Luca and Alexander tomorrow. ‬⁣ ⁣ ‪Goodnight from @iss.

AstroHague

Honored to celebrate the launch of the iconic #Apollo11 trio from @iss. Their dedication & service to space exploration served as an example growing up – especially the former @usairforce airmen whose epic lunar journey inspired me to venture to the cosmos myself.

AstroHague

‪Commemorating the Apollo 11 moon landing on @iss. How will you celebrate the historic accomplishment?🌝 #Apollo50th ‬

‪Sporting our red, white, and blue on @iss!🇺🇸⁣ ⁣ Planning a “cookout” tonight. Beef patties, corn, blueberry cobbler, and lemonade are all on the menu - tasty and ready in under 15 minutes. Hoping to catch some fireworks out the window later. Happy #4thofJuly from space!

astrohague

‪As a @usairforce family, this is a special holiday. Congrats to my wife, Colonel Catie Hague on her recent promotion! Thank you to all who have sacrificed for the greater good of our country. Proud to be serving a great nation. Happy #4thofJuly ‬

AstroHague

Incoming call from: @iss📞👨‍🚀 ⁣ ⁣ Since the earliest Expeditions, the HAM Radio has allowed us to have conversations with students from space. As we fly overhead, there is typically a 9-minute window to make contact and ask questions. ⁣ ⁣ What questions would you ask?

AstroHague

‪Our last night as Expedition 59. Tomorrow Anne McClain, @astrodavids & Oleg will return to Earth. Thank you for showing us the ropes during our first few weeks and making us feel at home on @iss. It’s been a privilege to work together as a crew. Have a safe trip home!‬

Yesterday I monitored the deployment of 4 small satellites (CubeSats), as they were ejected outside of the JEM laboratory on @iss. The first set of CubeSats deployed were from #Nepal, #SriLanka & #Japan, & the last CubeSat was from #Singapore.

Fluid shifts data collection - On Earth vs in space! While these pants look unusual, they may help us understand a potentially serious vision problem that affects some astronauts on long duration spaceflights.

I had an amazing opportunity today to share the importance of training with about 350 Junior #ROTC cadets from 19 Houston-area high schools. These young men and women are “enjoying” a week-long @usairforce experience at the @universityofhouston, brought to them by UH’s Detachment 003 cadre and cadets…#aimhigh #flyfightwin future Airmen!

Storing science samples in GLACIER on @iss! These are ultra-cold freezers that store samples at temps as low as -160 °C (-301 °F). The ability to rapidly freeze biologic samples is required by many researchers - critical for meeting research objectives.

As an active duty @usairforce Airman, I'd like to honor those who have come before me, dedicating their lives to serving our country. Your sacrifice makes everything possible. #MemorialDay "A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself." - Joseph Campbell

I recently had the honor of participating in a promotion ceremony for my fellow Airman Scott McKeever from @iss. Can't believe it has already been 21 years since the class of '98 graduated. Congratulations to the recent @af_academy graduates, may you all #FlyHigh!

Took a moment to capture the beauty of our planet today. I was awestruck as I watched the wispy clouds disappear into the shadows.

2 months into my stay on @iss! What’s it like adjusting to life in space? My back stretched out due to lack of gravity and I’m now 2 inches taller, fluid shifts make me feel a bit stuffy in my head, & the tops of my feet now have calluses since we use them like hands on handrails. ⁣ ⁣ The upsides? Floating is awesome, I can carry cargo using just my feet, the views can’t be beat, and a good crew makes everything better. ⁣ ⁣ 💡Spaceflight pro tip: Velcro every tool/item so that it doesn’t float away!

AstroHague

I got a chance to speak with my son’s class today. Kind of like “bring your dad to school” day 🙂

AstroHague

For #TeacherAppreciationWeek, I'd like to #ThankATeacher from @iss. Bette James - High School English teacher. Helped a quiet, introverted engineer find his voice. Irina Ivensky - Russian language teacher. Helped me learn a second language that took me to the stars.

AstroHague

Honoring Peter Mayhew (also known as Chewbacca) up here on @iss. Thank you Peter for inspiring generations of explorers.

AstroHague

Robotics training came in handy today! I assisted @astrodavids in capturing the @spacex #Dragon with Canadarm2, the robotic arm on @iss. Now it's time to unpack!

‪Indulged in a movie night last night...the Force was with us on @iss. #MayThe4thBeWithYou ‬

AstroHague

Last week Anne McClain & I prepared 3 new sample containers to be installed outside @iss. The Materials ISS Experiment Flight Facility exposes these samples to the harsh environment of space so that stronger materials can be developed on Earth.

AstroHague

As a young boy I remembered looking up to the stars at night in amazement, wondering if a small town kid from Kansas could ever soar that high. Now I am admiring our planet from the greatest vantage point - on @iss. What a special way to celebrate #EarthDay

AstroHague

Will 2019 be a big year for the 2013 astronaut class? Signs point to yes.🎱 Congratulations to my 8ball classmates on their recent mission assignments! Looking forward to contributing to space exploration with my good friends and colleagues on @iss.

AstroHague

Staying busy on @iss! I recently replaced an igniter in the Advanced Combustion via Microgravity Experiment (ACME), a set of 5 studies of gaseous flames conducted in the Combustion Integrated Rack (CIR) - allowing us to perform combustion experiments in microgravity.

‪On April 12, 1961 Yuri Gagarin made history when he become the first human to travel in space in his Vostok 1 spacecraft. We keep this photo taped to the wall on @iss to remember and honor his legacy which paved the way for human spaceflight. #CosmonauticsDay ‬

AstroHague

It was an honor to speak with Gen. Jay Raymond and all participants attending the #SpaceSynposium today. Thank you to the @usairforce team for helping create opportunities that led me to achieving maximum altitude on the @iss. I hope you enjoyed my microgravity tricks as much as I enjoyed demonstrating!

AstroHague

What does a spacewalk feel like? It’s tough work! It’s the equivalent of running a marathon – you’re in a spacesuit for nearly 12 hours straight with only 32 ounces of water. Though it’s called a spacewalk, you’re mostly using your upper body strength to maneuver around the outside of the @iss, so your forearms and hands are the most fatigued from having to fight the suit pressure for 12 hours. Watch Anne McClain & @astrodavids perform power upgrades to station tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. on @nasa TV📺

AstroHague

A long week of hard work and spacewalk prep calls for a pizza party. Making pizza in space is similar to making pizza on Earth, the only difference is our ovens look a little different and our pizza can float! Anyone on Earth having pizza tonight?🍕

AstroHague

A visitor arrived at @iss today...the progress resupply vehicle made record timing as it launched and docked to the station in under three and a half hours. Pretty impressive!

AstroHague

It was an overwhelming experience to be able to perform a spacewalk with two of my good friends, classmates, and now crewmates. Going out and accomplishing difficult tasks with @astro_christina as we floated above our beautiful planet was a special moment. Next spacewalk is on 4/8/2019 at 8:05am ET. Tune in and watch Anne McClain and @astrodavids as they install truss jumpers to provide a redundant power source to the Canadarm2 robotic arm.

AstroHague

Big thank you to the ground team down in Mission Control at @nasajohnson who supported Anne and I with our first #spacewalk on Friday. They are the ones who really make it possible to walk among the stars!💫

AstroHague

Tomorrow my crewmate Anne McClain & I are going outside for our first #spacewalk! Before venturing out into the vacuum of space, astronauts practice performing spacewalk tasks by training in our Neutral Buoyancy Lab – a large indoor pool containing 6.2 million gallons of water and a mock-up of the @iss.
