Astronaut Ron Garan, who was born in Yonkers, is now floating high above Earth, orbiting the planet aboard the International Space Station. He’s been doing all sorts of things, from working with space robots to chatting with reporters about missing Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit. He’s also been snapping a lot of photos, including the one above, and posting them to his TwitPic account. Amazing stuff. Happy browsing.
Garan is due back in September. Safe travels, sir.
