NASA Astronaut recently back on Earth.
Science, recondition, rest, repeat. Good directions for your first two weeks back on Earth.
Not sure who was more excited. Glad she remembers me after a year! That’s Sadie Lou, our LBD (little brown dog ). Best breed for a best friend.
And then there was this.
This journey has been everyone’s journey. Thank you to all involved in the success of our mission, and for giving me the opportunity to carry everyone’s dreams into space. I’m filled with gratitude to be back on the planet!
What will I miss? The exquisite beauty of both the planet Earth and this marvel that its amazing people created.
I’m going to miss this bunch. Thank you, space family. #Expedition61

It’s getting real. First time in the Soyuz with Alexander Skvortsov and #AstroLuca for our suit leak checks in preparation for undocking next Thursday! Первый раз с Александром Скворцовым и Лука Пармитано делали проверку герметичности скафандров для подготовки к расстыковке в следующий четверг!
Can’t think of a better way to spend my birthday than with my crewmates working on science equipment in space. Thanks for all the well wishes!🎉
Looking good, #Atlanta ! Good evening to the ATL.
Northwest #Madagascar , where the rivers run red in extreme flooding. Our thoughts are with those affected. Stay safe.
Congratulations to teams around the world on the repair of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the @iss ! Back to studying the fundamental physics of our universe thanks to years of hard work designing and executing a complex and unique repair plan. My privilege to work with you, @astrodrewmorgan , @astro_jessica , and #AstroLuca .
Living in space for nearly 1 year has given me a new appreciation for Earth. At times gazing out at the planet has evoked feelings of being #EarthSick for the people and places I love so much. In honor of being 14 days away from my return flight home, I’ll be answering your questions on my story about life in space - ask away!
Spacewalk time! After all the technical studying, airlock prepping, and conferencing, @astro_jessica and I multitask as we do our final briefing. 💡Spacewalk hair pro tip: Double braid is the way to go--fits snug under the com cap, out of the helmet seal, and no flyaways! Tune in tomorrow at 6:50am ET on @nasa TV
Star trails and solar array trails.
Talofa, American Samoa! I will never forget my Samoan friends and the island where I lived when I got the news that I was selected to be an astronaut. Great memories exploring new waves, trails, and reefs. One step closer to that umu on Mars! Fa’afetai lava! #SwellFomSpace
Australia. Our hearts and thoughts are with you.
