Busy weekend on @Space_Station…3 plant experiments, microbial tracking, miniaturized electron telescope, & superheating new alloys. Things don’t always work out though, so @NASA_Astronauts also do fixer-upper work. The commute home at end of a @NASA workday is a beautiful ride.

2022 has just begun but @NASA_Astronauts are diving right into science on @Space_Station...The first weekday of the new year & I was working on sequencing DNA to better test our environment long term on the Moon/Mars. More highlights of 2021 science at go.nasa.gov/32SyuOU

Happy 2022 from the @Space_Station! Started off the year with an amazing view of Antarctica while off the South American coast...the same area that Shackleton explored long ago with his crew, #Endurance.

Cheering on @usairforce from the @Space_Station as they finish the 2021 season strong…Aim High!

Christmas on @Space_Station is far from home, but the real credit goes to service members who let us sleep well thanks to their sacrifice. @NASA keeps @NASA_Astronauts supported & when they return, @DeptVetAffairs serves those who served. Thank you from #Crew3.

Look who showed up just in time on @Space_Station...maybe she was a stowaway on @SpaceX Dragon. Merry Christmas to the ground teams at @NASA and around the world supporting @NASA_Astronauts 24-7.

Look what we found in the backyard this AM on @Space_Station...can we keep it @NASA & @SpaceX? #Endurance #Dragonbuddy

Measure with a micrometer and cut with an axe…but fortunately, no cutting and no axes up on @Space_Station, but @AstroMarshburn and I literally used micrometers to inspect hatches with help of ground control at @NASA_Johnson.

Daily life on @Space_Station always changes for @NASA_Astronauts⁠ — got to do plant gene science, dive into a giant space closet, and try to keep my heart & legs healthy all in one day.

Spelunking on @Space_Station as @NASA_Astronauts do a mix of maintenance and science daily. Swapped out a bad computer, but first had to journey into the recesses of the space behind equipment racks to find it.

Great day — suited up my #Crew3 crewmates and flew them on the @csa_asc robotic arm. Kayla Barron and @AstroMarshburn replaced the critical @Space_Station antenna. True credit to the Robotics and EVA teams at @NASA_Johnson who trained us and executed from Mission Control.

Busy week on @Space_Station prepping for Kayla Barron and @AstroMarshburn's spacewalk but got a chance to speak with students from Colegio Pumahue in Chile. They built a HAM radio setup and talked with @NASA_Astronauts as we flew overhead.

Said goodbye to our Cygnus vehicle over the weekend. We used the @csa_asc robotic arm on @Space_Station to release it. @NASA_Astronauts recycle a lot on-orbit but we rely on the teams at @NASA_Johnson to get us additional supplies when we need them.

Getting settled in on @Space_Station with @Astro_Sabot and my #Crew3 buddies! More @NASA_Astronauts onboard = more toilet containers. Luckily, I found a way to move a bunch at a time while protecting my head since I still bump into things floating around in zero gravity.

"It is a powerfully emotional experience, and it's even more so when people you know and love are on board." @Astro_Raja and Kayla Barron, from our newest "Turtles" class of @NASA_Astronauts, get a shoutout from classmate @Astro_Woody during our #Crew3 Administrator Briefing:
