Night views are one of the things I miss most about living on @Space_Station. Our planet and the night sky are both magnificent. https://t.co/fNHbCzuFoH

Saw my friends @Astro_SEAL, Anatoly, and @ivan_mks63 go overhead on @Space_Station last night while visiting with friends from the team who made Demo 2 possible. Hard to believe we've been back for a month and a half! https://t.co/qFZp4RpRvc

Jolts, noise, and quoting old movies — @AstroBehnken explains what it was like to re-enter Earth's atmosphere inside the @SpaceX Dragon Endeavour. #LaunchAmerica https://t.co/qOxVwGTYP9

From the peak of the #Perseid meteor shower 🌠 to the Moon posing with Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus 🌕✨ here’s some of the great stuff you can see in the sky this August: https://t.co/6rIhgCD2DM https://t.co/1CqvwOWH5U

Thank you Mr. President! The opportunity to be a part of this mission was truly humbling. The ingenuity, cooperation, and dedication required by the team who accomplished this is a tribute to America! https://t.co/bHK32O9rqd https://t.co/SaYwsdI0ez

"The thing we're most excited about this mission -- it's written right on that sign -- Launch America. And then, of course, Land America today." @AstroBehnken reflects on the end of the shuttle era and the return of crewed launch capabilities to America. https://t.co/R5VZCOKMD5

Quoted @NASA

"Thanks for flying @SpaceX." 📍 Current Location: Planet Earth A 2:48pm ET, @AstroBehnken and @Astro_Doug splashed down, marking the first splashdown of an American crew spacecraft in 45 years. #LaunchAmerica https://t.co/zO3KlNwxU3

I'm extremely proud to have been a small part of what @NASA and @SpaceX just accomplished! Launching humans into space and bringing them home safely is a high water mark for technical achievement. We did it! https://t.co/fODXyTnQOc

Quoted @SpaceX

Good splashdown of Dragon confirmed! Welcome back to Earth, @AstroBehnken and @Astro_Doug! https://t.co/0vAS3CcK9P

Thank you @SpaceX for lending us the good ship Endeavour! She safely delivered us to @Space_Station and home again safely and with style! https://t.co/mKLfpHGYEB

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go… #LandAmerica https://t.co/FvyzeA58sb

LIVE NOW: Tune in to watch as @AstroBehnken & @Astro_Doug say farewell to their @Space_Station crew members. 👨‍🚀 👨‍🚀 Soon, the #LaunchAmerica crew will close the hatch on their spacecraft ahead of their return to planet Earth: https://t.co/cbqmPVuovA https://t.co/cbqmPVuovA

Teams from @NASA & @SpaceX continue to monitor weather, but we’re still on track for departure this weekend. Looking forward to climbing back into Endeavour for our trip home. #LandAmerica https://t.co/7IcG3WC4D6 https://t.co/L93VCaIan2

I’ve always been impressed with the work done by @NatlParkService. Activities like the Junior Ranger program make an extra effort to ensure the next generation of explorers gets an early start! I’m sure there are future @NASA_Astronauts among the participants! https://t.co/Fu7PabJTFU

If the weather at our splashdown location is right, next week at this time @SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavour will no longer be docked to the front of @Space_Station. My family is excited! #LandAmerica https://t.co/Kbpxcnb2Pv

Today we kicked off a new series of droplet formation studies here on @Space_Station. Enabling research like this to continue is a prime example of why @Commercial_Crew was so important. Why are we here? #BecauseScience! https://t.co/UPIJTfpnOR

Yep, “mini” chocolate cakes for my 50th birthday, because somebody, somewhere, loves me. Thank you @Astro_Megan for making it happen! https://t.co/9q6Oh9mq7P https://t.co/y6WDWIWr7V
