After Nearly a Year in Space, Astronaut Nick Hague Shares Some of His Favorite Memories – And Photos!

203 days. Nick Hague served humanity on the International Space Station for 203 days. For comparative purposes, today is the 282nd day of 2019. Hague got to the Space station back in March. That’s a long time to be “floating in a tin can,” as David Bowie would have put it.  Now Hague and two of his colleagues are back on earth after a successful Russian rocket ride last week. 

Luckily for us, Hague took lots of photos. Have a look!

As you can see, Hague is quite fond of group photos with his fellow ISS astronauts. He tweeted most of these photos just a short time after arriving back in the United States, where they potentially reached 58,000 followers. 

Apart from getting to orbit the earth for 203 days—that’s approximately 3250 trips around the globe—Hague got to do some great biological research. Oh yeah, and he got to talk space and movies with Brad Pitt! He also got to work with some truly world-class people who are both pioneers and servants of humanity.

Hague remarked of his journey on Twitter, “What an extraordinary journey! Part of what has made this experience so special was being here with my friends, classmates and our international partners.

“Thank you to all involved in the success of my mission on @Space_Station. I’m coming home.”

Prior to his service to NASA, Nick Hague served as a colonel in the Air Force. He graduated from the Air Force Acadamy with a Bachelor’s in Astronautical Engineering and later from MIT with a Master’s in the same field. Welcome home, Col. Hague, and thank you for your service!
