NASA Astronaut Christopher J. Cassidy 8"x10" Full Colour Portrait #2

This is a borderless 8" x 10" (approx) Photograph on Fuji/Kodak Paper. The actual print is sharper and more detailed than on the online image.

This is a superior quality photograph, suitable for autographing, matting or framing. Great for collecting the autographs of the astronauts. 

NASA EXPERIENCE:  Cassidy was selected by NASA in May 2004.  In February 2006, he completed Astronaut Candidate Training that included scientific and technical briefings, intensive instruction in shuttle and International Space Station systems, physiological training, T-38 flight training, and water and wilderness survival training.  Completion of this initial training qualified him for various technical assignments within the Astronaut Office and future flight assignment as a mission specialist.  From 2006 to 2008, he served as Capsule Commander (CAPCOM) in Mission Control.  In July 2009, Cassidy completed his first space flight and logged more than 376 hours in space, including 18 hours and 5 minutes of EVA in three spacewalks.

SPACE FLIGHT EXPERIENCE:  STS-127, International Space Station Assembly Mission 2J/A, Endeavour (July 15-31, 2009) delivered the Japanese-built Exposed Facility (JEM-EF) and the Experiment Logistics Module Exposed Section (ELM-ES) to the station.  The crew completed the construction of the KIBO Japanese Experiment Module, installed scientific experiments on its Exposed Facility and delivered critical spare parts and replacement batteries to the orbital complex, in addition to transferring 24,638 pounds of hardware and 1,225 pounds of water to the station. 

While the shuttle was docked to the station, the mission featured a record 13 astronauts working aboard the station representing all five space station partners: NASA, the Russian Space Agency, the Canadian Space Agency, the European Space Agency and the Japanese Space Agency.  Cassidy  performed three spacewalks totaling 18 hours and 5 minutes.  The mission was accomplished in 248 orbits of the Earth, traveling 6,547,853 million miles in 15 days, 16 hours, 44 minutes and 58 seconds.

Expedition 35/36 to the International Space Station -  On March 28, 2013, Cassidy launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan along with Russian cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin.  The three crew members were the first to complete an expedited trip to the station - instead of taking the standard two days to rendezvous and dock, they arrived at the orbiting complex in less than six hours.  Cassidy, Vinogradov and Misurkin were welcomed to the space station by  Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency, Tom Marshburn of NASA and Roman Romanenko of Roscosmos, who have been aboard the outpost since December 2012.
