Social media in orbit: An astronaut’s stunning photos shared via Twitter

After almost six months aboard the International Space Station (ISS), Maryland local Reid Wiseman landed safely in Kazakhstan last night. Wiseman built quite a social media following for his pictures from space.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to spend 165 days up here. With that said, I’m looking forward to heading home,” Wiseman said on Saturday. Wiseman grew up in Cockeysville, Md., near Baltimore.
