Had a great time watching the @Hou_Sabercats leave it all on the pitch in the @usmlr Western Conference Final rugby match last weekend. Not a bad view from WAY up in the nosebleeds!

One of my favorite parts about being in orbit is getting to observe geologic features on Earth from a planetary perspective. A great example is the Grand Canyon – truly grand both from afar and up close, but Valles Marineris on Mars is 4x as long, 4.5x as deep, and 20x as wide!

Setting out to capture photos of Los Angeles, my former home, this weekend, it was hard to miss the smoke filling the valley near Wrightwood, CA. Our thoughts and prayers are with all who are affected by the #SheepFire.

As beautiful as the Earth is, I can't seem to take my eyes off of the Moon. Every moonset on @Space_Station brings us one step closer to earthrise on the Moon as we conduct scientific research and develop new technologies that will help pave the way to the lunar surface.

"There's no sweeter sound on the @Space_Station than the sound of a working toilet." -@OlegMKS Each member of our crew brings unique skillsets to the table, but we all have to learn to be jacks of all trades, including space plumbing!

A little late to the party, but so grateful to have celebrated my birthday with my Expedition 67 crewmates earlier this month. The cake may look simple, but assembling (and keeping assembled!) all those layers in microgravity was a delicious feat by @astro_kjell.

Welcome aboard to our newest visitor, Rosie the Rocketeer, who arrived Friday on @Boeing's #Starliner! Pretty amazing to now have three different human-rated spacecraft docked to the @Space_Station. Congratulations to the entire team! 📷(first image): @AstroSamantha

After a whirlwind of training the past several months, we made it to the @Space_Station. Many more updates to come, but for now I’m just enjoying the view from on top of the world. Photo credit: @NASA_Astronauts Kayla Barron

FREEDOM!! Crew-4 will fly to the International Space Station in a new Dragon capsule named “Freedom.” The name celebrates a fundamental human right, and the industry and innovation that emanate from the unencumbered human spirit. 1/
