A guy I went to school with has built himself a pretty nice photography business which has allowed him to do and see some pretty neat things. One of his most noteworthy ventures has been his “Everyday Astronaut” series.

The description as seen on his website:

In November of 2013, I found myself the lone bidder of a Russian high altitude space suit on an auction website called RRauction. Since then, I’d been scheming how to best use the suit. I have been revisiting my childhood love for space and my obsession was growing stronger and stronger. It was only natural to use this suit to project the inner child in me, still dreaming about space. With that, I present to you: “A day in the life of Everyday Astronaut”

A day in the life of Everyday Astronaut


Good morning world!

Decisions, decisions


Always brush your teeth!

Boldly going where no astronaut has gone before


I’m super depressed Chris Hadfield was named TIME’s “Astronaut of the Year”

It just isn’t the same


Time to mow!

Did a little grocery shopping


I always order my ice cream Ă  la space

Out for a walk with my dog Laika


Did some research at the library

Houston, we have a problem


Testing out my solid rocket boosters

Playing with my Zero-G simultator


Watching my favorite movie

Goodnight world
