I really hope Nasa realizes how great he has been at humanizing the space program.
Perhaps the most important role in commanding the space station isn’t to conduct experiments - but to explain them in terms the rest of us can relate to.
he’s the latest of a many amazing astronauts that raise awareness for the space program - they work unbelievably hard to get there and believe in the programs, and public opinion affects funding. Another really cool astronaut is Don Pettit… remember his photography and personal experiments that he youtubed?
