Christmas 2019 on the @Space_Station: an international celebration with an international crew! We exchanged gifts in stockings and shared seasonal foods packaged for space from the US, Italy and Russia… even included smoked salmon!

Glad the predawn fog lifted for today’s training flight with @astrovicglover. We flew to the biggest airport in Houston to hone skills in a fast jet in busy airspace, by way of coastal Texas.

Love this to L2 and back! Best Christmas present ever.
✅ Rollout complete! The James Webb Space Telescope and the @ariane5 rocket it’s riding on are all settled in their final position on Earth. Next step: launch on Dec. 25 at 7:20 am ET (12:20 UTC) to #UnfoldTheUniverse: go.nasa.gov/3FqLt9c 📸: NASA/Bill Ingalls

Science for Christmas! A new cargo ship packed full of experiments docked to @Space_Station today. The kind of things we can only learn in space, to benefit life on Earth. All the details at nasa.gov/mission_pages/stati…

It seemed so real. Augmented Reality microgravity simulation of the future living quarters of the @NASAArtemis @NASA_Gateway. Worked with this incredible team to talk best ways to work on the ceiling, live in a moon-orbiting tiny home, and even fit in some exercise and science.

Absolutely can’t wait to see this launch and @NASAWebb start its bold and important mission!
The James Webb Space Telescope has been encapsulated inside its @Ariane5 rocket fairing, and is set to launch on Dec. 24: go.nasa.gov/3qqyy0P 📸: @esa-Manuel Pedoussaut

Anatomy of a spacewalk development run: learn, suit-up, execute, celebrate! All with the team. Congratulations, Alan on 5,000 hours under the water in our simulator of the @Space_Station exterior!

I had always wished we had been together up there! Instead, @Astro_jessica found me and @AstroAnnimal hanging around, together on an outreach mission on Earth. Lucky to have flown with these two astro sisters, even if not at the same time.

Watched some great spacewalk teamwork this past week to replace a degraded communications antenna on @Space_Station. Keeping the ship strong! Photographer and onboard suit-up teammate not in these pics: @Astro_Sabot

Two years ago, I was feeling thankful for plentiful airlock times. We were halfway through a series of intricate spacewalks to fix an amazing telescope on @Space_Station called AMS and I got to be the main suiter-upper for my friends @astro_luca and @AstroDrewMorgan.

This picture is forever changed. Congratulations to our Russian colleagues on a successful docking of a new node on the @Space_Station! Great to see the station still alive and growing and to serve as Capcom in mission control on the last shift before this new arrival.

Welcome to your new home.
Four new astronauts through the hatch and seven crewmembers total on the @Space_Station! After almost exactly a day from launch, #Crew3 is aboard the orbiting laboratory.

Soon! Watch undocking of Endeavor on The NASA app! See you soon, Crew-2!
Milestone reached ✨ @SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour's hatch is closed. There are two more hatches to be closed on the @Space_Station; meanwhile, @Astro_Kimbrough and @Astro_Megan will finish configuring the Dragon cabin before undocking at 2:05pm ET. Coverage starts at 1:45pm ET:

Still so beyond honored for this. To celebrate, please do something unexpected and nice for someone else in Raleigh for me today and breathe in the beautiful Fall air!
In 2019, @RaleighGov officially proclaimed Nov. 6 as @Astro_Christina Koch Day. 👩‍🚀🎉 Read more about the three-time @NCState alumna's record-breaking time in space. ncst.at/SXvv50GHCLo

Visited schools in every emirate on our trip to the United Arab Emirates! Awesome to talk about space flight and answer students’ impressive questions. The trip commemorated our mission with the @MBRSpaceCentre first astronaut, @astro_hazzaa, in 2019 on @Space_Station.
