Astronaut out! Thank you for all the amazing questions.

Make sure to follow us on Tumblr for your regular dose of space: http://nasa.tumblr.com

Hello Dr Kate Rubins, why conduct your researches in space? What is there in space that you need for your research? Best regards.

When you went into space for the first time, what was it like? Were you nervous?

Other than joy, why do you do the things you do?

What is your advice to someone who wants to follow the same steps you take?

What popular film is the closest to reality for you?

What's something you didn't know about being an astronaut before you actually became one? Do you have any words of advice for young astronauts?

What does it feel like to float?? Do you have trouble adjusting to walking on the earth after that ??

How does it feel to into space for the first time? Like liftoff and leaving earth’s atmosphere? It seems like the world’s terrifying roller coaster, but what’s it really like?

Hey, Kate! What would you say/what advice would you give to your younger self? ✨
