Astronauts on Earth

Astronauts on Earth

Wonderful photo series by Hunter Freeman reminds us that astronauts are regular people when they are not in space.

NASA’s 30 year Space Shuttle program ended in 2011. This means that astronauts now have a lot more free time to watch TV or go to the store.

    I love the one where there’s an astronaut at the laundromat! It’s sad how they lost their job…they might be able to find one in the same field but they may have to change since finding a job is so hard these days. I love how this shows astronauts are human too in sort of a funny way!

    Lost their job but I think that NASA pension plan is more than most of us make busting our butts off

    The one with the Astronaut sitting in a restaurant was used as the artwork for Bayside’s new album!

    My FIRST thought was that River must have had a lot to get done before going to Utah. But then, I’m kind of a geek.

    Playing pool alone, sitting on a park bench alone, watching tv alone? Why is this astronaut so lonely!!!
