Sorry for the gap in tweets! I’ve been getting adjusted to life on @Space_Station, including setting up my new crew quarters in the cockpit of Dragon Resilience. https://t.co/0PTkpEyA4e

The @SpaceX #CrewDragon astronauts, @Astro_illini, @AstroVicGlover, @Astro_Soichi and Shannon Walker are hard at work and getting used to life on the station. More... https://t.co/aAp79ML16o https://t.co/dAPTWC2DjA

All systems are go for tonight’s launch at 7:27 p.m. EST of Crew Dragon’s first operational mission with four astronauts on board. Teams are keeping an eye on weather conditions for liftoff, which are currently 50% favorable → https://t.co/bJFjLCzWdK https://t.co/GTpvVAiLkK

Game day! https://t.co/HonEy61Io7

Update on NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission: 🐉 The crew is in good spirits. They noted they called their Crew Dragon spacecraft "Resilience" for a reason! 🌤️ Weather is predicted to be 60% favorable at the launch site 🚀 We are on track for a launch at 7:27 p.m. EST Sun., Nov. 15 https://t.co/bSO4TAhcRm

How much do you have in common with NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission astronauts? Probably a lot more than you think! The crew shares some of their biggest pet peeves, greatest guilty pleasures, and of course, a few of their favorite things! #LaunchAmerica https://t.co/xAl36tpRO6

Little over 2 days left to lift off. . Still time to get to know Victor, Shannon and Soichi. https://t.co/NvhHodKHnL

Today, the crew of NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission departed Ellington Field in Houston, pictured here, and safely arrived at @NASAKennedy in Florida. Next stop: the @Space_Station! As NASA astronaut Victor Glover said upon landing, “Go Falcon, go Dragon, and go Resilience!” https://t.co/daBKBR9iVg

We made it to historic Kennedy Space Center! Less than one week to go. https://t.co/yH4b6KQUYz

NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission patch is full of meaning. You'll notice: ♊️ The symbols on the bottom pay tribute to the Space Shuttle, Apollo, Gemini, and Mercury. 🛰️ There are no names or flags because it honors everyone who worked on the mission, not just the crew. https://t.co/vO0pcO3gVa

Big fan of the Crew 1 patch. All for one, Crew 1 for all. https://t.co/hejYfpHwat

Quoted @NASA_Johnson

On Nov. 14, the astronauts of NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission launch in a commercial vehicle to the @Space_Station from the U.S. for a long-duration mission. The crew explains what their mission is, how it's different from Bob and Doug's flight, and what it means for us on Earth. https://t.co/kVD8C1G2IR

A little more about the Crew of Resilience and the mission https://t.co/fmTqP8v1cP

Quoted @NASA_Johnson

🤔 Who is the funniest crew mate? Who would come in LAST in a footrace? Get to know your crew as the astronauts of NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission talk about their time in space – and each other! They're scheduled to launch to the @Space_Station together Nov. 14. https://t.co/v720cJVH1t

Couldn’t ask for better crewmates. Hope you get to know them like I do. https://t.co/Lxcxrfj02h

Yesterday marked 20 years since the first module of the @Space_Station, Zarya, launched into low-Earth orbit and changed humanity forever. I’m proud to have been a part of this incredible international achievement, and can’t wait to return soon! #SpaceStation20th https://t.co/iQVxtWmwou

It’s not microgravity, but it’s great practice! NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins trains on the Active Response Gravity Offload System, which helps astronauts practice for spacewalks. @Astro_Illini will fly to the space station on @SpaceX’s Crew Dragon in 2019. https://t.co/SKUq4MgNuQ https://t.co/tG7McMQ8Lp

Quoted @NASA_Johnson

An important part of astronaut training – taste testing! @Commercial_Crew astronauts try space food options and choose items to eat during their mission. Nutrition is very important, but so is taste, and that it doesn’t make a mess in microgravity. https://t.co/WizZmNlRDF https://t.co/EBDEwRDuVw

Training for the @SpaceX Dragon Crew-1 mission includes all of the normal @Space_Station training. I’m practicing for #spacewalk emergencies by utilizing the SAFER (Simplified Aid for EVA Rescue) – a small, self-contained, jet pack, piloted by a hand controller. https://t.co/GVUewKYWyx

Astronaut training is serious business. Enjoying @Commercial_Crew training with my crewmate @VicGlover. Can't wait to share more updates with you all soon. https://t.co/QGycUFw6lB

I’m flying to @Space_Station again! The opportunity to fly in a new vehicle is any test pilot and astronaut’s dream. Looking forward to working with @SpaceX and excited for the journey that lies ahead. #LaunchAmerica

Finally, on @SpaceX's second crewed mission launching from Florida to the @Space_Station, first time space flyer @VicGlover and veteran astronaut @Astro_illini! https://t.co/1ombgSS6Fm

Very excited to join Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences (@shortyawards). Can't wait to see all the nominations!

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Enjoying it in the car traveling back home-but we did stop off and tour the USS Alabama which was awesome.
