Hiya NASA! #OurJourney

Thanks to NASA and the Houston Space Center on the quick tour today.

Houston, Texas

Shuttle stuff is cool!

Not quite the “all glass cockpit” that we are used to seeing in 2016.

Also thanks to all the media that was there today and will be there tomorrow covering the grand opening of the new Independence Plaza.

Nurturing science and technology will help explore new frontiers. #NASA #Independence #ourjourney

It really is the perfect backdrop for everyone.

Great examples of how science and technology will help explore new frontiers.

Also, so glad to see Challenger crew is still honored in many parts of the campus, staff, and on the tours. On behalf of everyone from Hawaii, this means so much to all of us.

The NASA family lost seven of its own on the morning of Jan. 28, 1986, when a booster engine failed, causing the Shuttle Challenger to break apart just 73 seconds after launch.

NASA has some neat stuff.

What the deuce?

An actual DoD red phone – I’m nerding out! “Flush the bombers, get the subs in launch mode. We are at DEFCON 1.”

Truly honored.

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” – JFK September 12, 1962

Thank you NASA!

Before and after #SOTU – Make sure to Instagram it

Back in January 2015, the President made a speech – #SOTU (State of the Union).

POUTS’ quote was “Good luck Captain. Make sure to Instagram it.”


And on January 20, 2015, Commander Kelly’s Instagram account looked like this.


@STATIONCDRKELLY’s Instagram game =  *cricket*   *cricket*   *cricket*.

Aaaaand getting called out by the boss on national TV is…er….rough. Woof!

So as a quick follow up to the NASA program, it appears that Astronaut Scott Kelly has stepped up his Gram game and is regularly posting some really neat content.


Postings include selfies too. Not bad because in space, there are not a bunch of people standing around to take pictures.
