NASA astronaut Nick Hague took an amazing photo of the Earth and moon from the International Space Station (ISS) and published it on his Twitter account, saying “good night from space station”.
Born on September 24, 1975, Nick Hague is an American flight test engineer and a NASA astronaut of the class of 2013.
Selected to be a flight engineer on the International Space Station, his first launch was on Soyuz MS-10, which aborted shortly after take-off on October 11, 2018, due to a booster failure. The crew, Hague and the Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin landed safely after a ballistic descent.
His second launch, on March 14, 2019, was successful, taking him and his fellow Soyuz MS-12 crew members to join ISS Expedition 59/60. Ovchinin, too, launched to the ISS again on Soyuz MS-12, with Hague and Christina Koch, NASA astronaut of the class of 2013.
