Planted my tree along the 'Alley of Cosmonauts', overlooking the Syr Darya river. A proud moment in my journey.

Historic and cool, go back in 10 years and take a picture of it :)

Having a tree planted close to the one planted by Yuri Gagarin must be a true honor.

Great tradition! Can't imagine winter tree-planting ceremonies. We need astro-forest @ JSC. #nasa
