We get to see 16 days & nights every 24 hours up here and that makes for a lot of pretty sunrises and sunsets.

It’s interesting (& cool) to see different farming methods around the world. How do they decide on crop types, sizes, shapes?

Had to move some suits today and got caught in a traffic jam. But it was a wicked-cool, space-suit-traffic-jam, so I didn’t mind.

It’s always fun to make sandcastles at the beach. From orbit, you get to see the cool stuff Mother Nature makes on the beach.

Spied some glaciers on a rare cloudless day. Love these–looks like a wedding veil to me, only more awesome & really cold.

Sometimes all you have to do is shine a new light on it, to see things in an entirely different way--like the ocean by moonlight…

We decided to play w/lights & make our crew picture. Remember black light bowling & roller rinks in the 80’s? It's like that…only in space.

One recent experiment (ROSA) looked at a new solar array that unfurled like a party horn on New Year’s, & it worked!
