Currently living in space, @StationCDRKelly  is 1 of 6 people that literally cannot be dragged down. #DragMeDown 

Cameras outside the station captured views of #HurricaneDorian  at 12:16 p.m. ET on Sept. 1 as it churned over the northern Bahamas. The storm is a dangerous Category 5 hurricane, carrying the strongest winds in recorded history for the northwestern Bahamas. #Hurricane  #Dorian 

Astronauts on Apollo 8 captured the first “Earthrise,” and now, astronauts on the space station capture Earth’s lights, days and nights. The best way to celebrate #WorldPhotographyDay  is with photos of our world. Want more astronaut-captured shots? Visit .

Today we are celebrating 17 yrs of continuous human presence in space! Congrats to all who have had a part in this extraordinary endeavor.
