Connecticut astronaut tweets a pic of Connecticut…FROM SPACE!
Last month, we learned about Waterbury’s Rick Mastracchio, a NASA astronaut who was about to undergo a mission aboard a Russian spacecraft to the International Space Station. And his mission was successful – in fact, he’s up there right now.
Early yesterday morning, while the ISS was making its orbit, it passed over Connecticut, and Rick not only took a picture of his home state, but tweeted it as well:
Hey Connecticut (& RI) – I just flew over! Looks like nice weather. pic.twitter.com/s0wruJWHcl

Follow him @AstroRM because he posts a lot of cool pictures, directly from space, which is really kinda mind-blowing when you start to think about it – but also, he actually responds to his followers…again – FROM SPACE!!!
