Community outreach is a huge part of being an astronaut, because astronauts are inspirational figures who show us the impossible is possible, that it’s not too far out of reach.
Which is why, from March 18 until August 31 (167 days), I wore an astronaut costume to capture one photograph with a new person every day. I volunteered in various organizations, raised funds and wore the suit where appropriate. I wanted to prove to the world that I care enough about humanity that you should care to send me into space in the Axe Apollo Contest. I hope that I earned a bit of your trust, faith, and hopefully sparked a little inspiration along the ride. Enjoy the pics and videos!
