Sometimes you gotta lean on your brother for support. My brother @ShuttleCDRKelly is running for the U.S. Senate and I think he will do a great job. If you can, chip in a few bucks today to help him get there. Click the link in the bio to donate!

‪Deforestation changes the face of our planet. Between my first flight in 1999 and last in 2016, I noticed a difference in the #Amazon Less forest more burning fields. The #AmazonRainforest produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen. We need O2 to survive!‬

Explored the #InfiniteWonder of #MachuPicchu in person. The sky was particularly important to the Incas, including the rise and fall of the sun, the moon, and the stars. I get that. Beautiful place! #FridayThoughts

Happy #Apollo50th ! We did it. We accomplished what seemed impossible—an incredible feat for humankind. We know if we dream it, we can do it. As we look back on history and celebrate our giant leap. May we dream a new vision for the future and go achieve the impossible again!

#ThursdayThoughts It’s almost like it was put there on purpose. The moon. To practice going to Mars. It’s 3 days versus 200 days. It’s got 1/6th of gravity vs 1/3 of gravity. No atmosphere versus a little. #Apollo50 #Appllo50th #moon #Artemis

243 years ago today, America began here. As we celebrate the birth of our nation, may we honor “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” #July4th

Bourdain showed us through colorful, candid storytelling that while our planet is vast and our cultural experiences differ, we share an even more familiar bond than food. He connected us with the common thread of humanity. #BourdainDay

#ThrowbackThursday to the #TwinsStudy publication released in April. Was just @NASA for more post-flight medical & flight field tests. And finally got my copy! Some interesting results. . Like, how I’m now smarter & more handsome than my brother. . But also, three key findings related to gene expression changes, immune system response, and telomere dynamics. . NASA’s Twins Study was the first of its kind to study what physiological, molecular and cognitive changes could happen to a human from exposure to spaceflight through the genetic research of myself during my #yearinspace and my twin brother @shuttlecdrkelly who remained back on Earth. . We were pricked, prodded, scanned, x-rayed and eyeballed. And we donated on some rather intimate personal data. My brother had the hardest job. Because he was stuck on Earth while I had the privilege of flying in space for nearly a year. . Space is hard. The environment of space is hard too. Confinement, isolation, and exposure to environmental stressors such as microgravity, radiation, and noise make space a difficult place to be for a long period of time. If we want to go to Mars (which could take three years for a round trip ) or anywhere farther, we need to understand how space effects the human body. . The science continues! Meanwhile, check my Stories for more on the #TwinsStudy and what we’ve learned so far. . . . . . . . . . . #science #nasa #space #twinsstudy #yearinspace

Earth Art out of Africa! June summertime pics are often captioned as heaven on Earth. Locals here describe summer as more like hell. The heart of this region in Algeria dubbed “the triangle of fire” in the #SaharaDesert is one of the hottest spots on the planet. . Its low temperature is equal to a Houston summer high. Ouch! But it looks so cool, no? . What’s your favorite season on Earth? . . . . . . . . . . #EarthArt #InfiniteWonder #spacephoto #earth #earthfocus #colorsplash #art #saharadesert #yearinspace #beautifulearth

Some say this neck tatt will affect my future employment. Went to NASA yesterday for ultrasounds studying the spaceflight effects on the cardiovascular system. It was 1 of 10 #TwinsStudy investigations during my yearlong flight. Lots of scans required before, during and after that continue for five years from when I returned to Earth. So before my flight, I went to Bad Boyz Tattoos and got inked. I have eight tattoos on my body as reference marks. Taking space science to heart. No Regrats! #yearinspace #nasa #science

Whoever named our planet Earth must have had a sense of humor. Our planet is largely covered by water. It is the blue in our blue marble. To protect our planet, we must protect our oceans. #WorldOceansDay

We pause today on this #DDay75thAnniversary to honor the fallen heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy for the freedoms we cherish today—an allied victory—that also serves as a time-honored testament of what we can do when we work together.

‪One day on my #yearinspace , I saw city lights I’d never seen before because the area had always been covered by pollution. Gov't closed coal plants that day. Everything we do impacts our planet. It’s up to us what kind of impact it will be. #WorldEnvironmentDay

The tapestry of our colorful planet from 250 miles above is beautiful because of its diversity. Yet, we don’t shame it for what it is. Oceans hug shores. Yet we never question its morality for doing so. Imagine our world if we were as accepting, loving and tolerant with one another. #PrideMonth #EarthArt #InfiniteWonder
