All smiles after we completed our flight in the Soyuz to transfer to the new MRM-1 docking port.  Here I am at my duty station in the capsule. It’s a little small but I have a window seat. The undocking, fly-around, and re-docking went smoothly. ‘ Olympus ’ is a fine machine and flying great!

My oldest as a youngster wanted 2 B an Astronaut, but has eyes issues, so sadly, not a dream to come true.

Congratulations Douglas! Are you sitting in the same place as during the launch of Soyuz? I remember these moments from NASA's video.
