You watched as history was made with the first crewed launch and docking of the @SpaceX Crew Dragon, but you didn’t see the flurry of activity aboard the space station…until now. Watch the excitement unfold in the full video here: https://t.co/nSxBlxzzNw #LaunchAmerica https://t.co/aqfOIfwbS6

While Dragon was breathing fire, Anatoly, @ivan_mks63 & I were busy trying to capture photos of @NASAKennedy & the launch. You could feel the excitement in all three of us knowing that rocket was zipping up hill to meet us the next day. Honored to be part of this historic event! https://t.co/Ov1Oi8iWdL

See the #CrewDragon launch from the perspective of @Astro_SEAL ! https://t.co/a2bvjST87s

The only thing cooler than living on @Space_Station is getting the chance to work outside of it! I’m lucky to have had several opportunities to go outside for a #spacewalk to help assemble and maintain the Station over the years. Two more planned for next week! #SpaceStation20th https://t.co/lTuF2DKgew

Have you seen our @NASA_Astronauts' photography of Earth from their home 250 miles above? @Astro_Doug explains one reason they snap photos to share and describes some of the most easily recognizable spots. 📸 To browse astronaut photography, visit https://t.co/hI1oyYM84S. https://t.co/eMHOrB61rE

Space station science isn't performed alone.

Astronauts and researchers work hand-in-hand to make experiments successful. For the Sextant Navigation study, inputs from the crew helped refine tools being tested for future Moon missions. https://t.co/c8t72vGIzP https://t.co/chuGo1QPaE

Amazing view of the water flowing into Argentina’s San Jose Gulf from the San Matias Gulf. Seeing movement in large bodies of water is one of my favorite things to observe from @Space_Station.

The crew practiced an emergency, examined eyes and researched water conservation ahead of two spacewalks planned to start next week. More... https://t.co/dJJe73mm8W https://t.co/dKpsdVE9sb
