Full colour official portrait of NASA Astronaut Timothy J Creamer
This is a borderless 8 x 10 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.
Selected by NASA in June 1998, Creamer reported for Astronaut Candidate Training in August 1998. Having completed the initial two years of intensive Space Shuttle and Space Station training, he was assigned technical duties in the Space Station Branch of the Astronaut Office, where his primary focus involved the command and control computers on Space Station, as well as the office automation support computers, and the operational Local Area Network encompassing all international partners and modules.
Beginning November 2000, Creamer became the Crew Support Astronaut for the Expedition 3 Crew, which was on orbit from August 2001 to December 2001. He was the primary contact for all the crew needs, coordination, planning and interactions, and was the primary representative of the crew while they were on orbit.
Starting March 2002, Creamer headed the Hardware Integration Section of the Space Station Branch, responsible for ensuring all hardware configurations were properly integrated, and that all operational aspects of the future ISS hardware are accounted for. In October 2004, he was assigned to be the astronaut office representative and coordinator for all things relating to on-orbit Information Technologies.
He was next assigned to the Robotics Branch, dealing with the International Partners on all computer aspects of Robotics operations, as well as all of the Command and Control software and user interfaces. Additionally, he was the real-time support lead for Expedition-12 for all things involving the Robotics operations on the International Space Station. He also served as a back-up Expedition 19 crew member.
Since December 2009 Creamer has lived and worked aboard the International Space Station where he serves as a Flight Engineer and NASA Science Officer on Expedition 22/23. He launched aboard Soyuz-TMA-17 for a 6-month tour of duty.
NASA EXPERIENCE: Creamer was assigned to NASA at the Johnson Space Center in July 1995 as a Space Shuttle vehicle integration test engineer. His duties primarily involved engineering liaison for launch and landing operations of the Space Shuttle. He was actively involved in the integrated tests of the systems for each Orbiter for its preparations for its next flight, and directly supported eight Shuttle missions as a vehicle integration test team lead. Additionally, he focused his efforts in coordinating the information technologies for the Astronaut Office to aid personnel in their electronic communications both on JSC as well as through their travels to other Centers.
