5 hours packed into 30 seconds! Working hard on SPHERES, one of my favorite experiments! SPHERES consists of 3 bowling-ball sized spherical satellites on board @iss that test a diverse range of hardware and software from scientists all over America.

Such a beautiful view as we fly 250 miles above Earth. On a SW to NE trajectory headed for Mexico I spotted this mass of rock apparently oozing from the ocean fighting to break above the water line. This swell has long been asleep, having reached its goal, yet it still serves as a reminder of the dynamics of this active and alive planet that we live on. This is the island of Socorro, 400 miles off the coast of Mazatlan. From our vantage point on the International Space Station, the geology and tectonics are all so clear, and clearly complex. Entire mountain ranges come into view and volcanoes and impact craters are so obvious at first glance. We have a rare perspective to see the earth as an entire globe, floating freely in space. There are no borders and we can barely see large cities without looking closely with the naked eye. Earth is our spaceship, and the @iss is just a traveling companion as we hurtle around the sun together again and again. As #EarthDay approaches, I hope all inhabitants of our beautiful planet learn to see it without borders as we do…we all live out in space. https://eos.org/opinions/earth-day-message-from-an-astronaut-on-the-space-station

On #HolocaustRemembranceDay I'd like to join people around the world who are commemorating those whose lives were lost. Petr Ginz, a Czech boy who perished at Auschwitz, brilliantly depicted how the Earth would look from the Moon in this illustration. Israeli Astronaut Ilan Ramon flew a copy on Space Shuttle Columbia in 2003 and never returned home with the illustration. I am honoured to have the opportunity to complete his intentions. go.nasa.gov/2EGdauj
