NASA Astronaut Donald Pettit, PhD, a three-time space explorer, was the first astronaut in the history of space exploration to successfully enter a commercially built and operated spacecraft docked in the International Space Station (ISS) while in orbit. During his time in space—logging more than 370 days orbiting Earth and over thirteen EVA (spacewalking) hours—Pettit amassed an extraordinary portfolio of long-exposure outer space photos he calls “star trails.”
