If you’ve ever wondered about the astronaut’s view from his spaceship, NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins gives you a really good answer.
As captain, Hopkins is responsible for all phases of flight, from launch to re-entry. However, he still has time to relax and enjoy the view.
Even though they’re 250 miles from Earth, the Resilience crew, a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft, always find ways to connect with us and share their experiences.
Hopkins says, “Sometimes on a day off, you just have to stare at the clouds.”
Check out Hopkins’ views below and follow his mission updates on Twitter.
