While many people might put astronauts on pedestals, and for good reason, Rick Mastracchio shows that they are just like other average Americans by posting a slew of selfies on his Twitter account. Granted, the context of these selfies are out of reach for the majority of the world's population, but that is besides the point.

Taken during his recent stint on the International Space Station, Rick Mastracchio poses with the Earth in the background, in front of the Japanese modules and inside an airlock while replacing a pump in his spacesuit. Giving fans a glimpse of what it's like to be in space, Rick Mastracchio makes the adventure much more playful and casual than one would expect.
