Have spent a lifetime of learning, education, and experiencing only to find we are all the same. We are all we have. The human condition is my precept to understanding and applying the truth to life. There is nothing more than to understand we are not alone. We were created for a grander more loving purpose. Enjoy and revel in the fact we can communicate in so many ways. Believe, also, our destinies will be fulfilled. For all mankind, Our Father, YHWH, Jehovah, God, and all ways to speak the Truth exists. Who wants to join in something so simple, it cannot be denied? Jesus is my Advocate and Savior to God. one in the same. You are all most welcome and revered, in life and eternity. So, enjoy life, enjoy communication, and just be yourself. Do not just give 'lip service' or 'just scan' what you read. Do it!

As crew switches to research after two successful spacewalks in just over a week, European astronaut Thomas Pesquet is seen here as he inserts a locker into a science freezer. The locker holds scientific samples for stowage and later analysis.

Following a successful pair of spacewalks, the Expedition 50 crew switches gears and is moving full-speed ahead with advanced space research. The orbital residents checked out science gear and studied the impacts of living in space.

European astronaut Thomas Pesquet repressed the Japanese Kibo lab module airlock after a small satellite deployer shot a set of tiny satellites, or CubeSats, into Earth orbit on Monday. The variety of CubeSats will test new spacecraft deorbiting and propulsion technologies and be used for communication purposes.

Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson joined veteran cosmonauts Andrey Borisenko and Oleg Novitskiy for the ongoing Fluid Shifts study and collected blood, urine and saliva samples. The human research experiment seeks to investigate vision and eye damage some astronauts have reported after their space missions.

Commander Shane Kimbrough worked on combustion science gear troubleshooting a pair of devices that explore flames and high temperatures in space. Flight Engineer Sergey Ryzhikov worked inside a docked Soyuz spacecraft recharging computer batteries.
