In between his time helping perform science experiments on the International Space Station and capturing robotic cargo spacecraft as they approach the outpost, NASA astronaut and Expedition 56 Commander Drew Feustel recorded a music video.

“Special thanks to the crew of Expedition 55 and 56 for their support and participation in our human space exploration mission,” Feustel tweeted. “I am ever thankful for the support of my family, friends, and colleagues…love is all around us and we are all around the world.”

Feustel launched to the ISS in March 2018 and is expected to return to Earth Oct. 4, 2018, along with NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev. They will leave behind Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev, NASA astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor and European Space Agency Alexander Gerst to form the first part of Expedition 57.

I am a space geek who loves to write about space.

My passion for space ignited when I watched space shuttle Discovery leap to space on October 29, 1998. Today, this fervor has accelerated toward orbit and shows no signs of slowing down. After dabbling in math and engineering courses in college, I soon realized that my true calling was communicating to others about space exploration and spreading that passion.

Currently, I am a senior at Washburn University studying Mass Media with an emphasis in contemporary journalism. In addition to running Orbital Velocity, I write for the Washburn Review and am the Managing Editor for SpaceFlight Insider.
