Nicole Stott is an astronaut, aquanaut, and artist who creatively combines the awe and wonder of her spaceflight and undersea experiences with her artwork to inspire everyone’s appreciation of our role as crewmates here on Spaceship Earth. A veteran NASA astronaut with two spaceflights, she spent 104 days living and working on the International Space Station (ISS) and Space Shuttle. Personal spaceflight highlights include performing a spacewalk, flying the robotic arm to capture the first HTV freeflyer cargo vehicle, painting a watercolor, working with her crewmates on science that’s all about improving life on Earth, and of course the view out the window. As an aquanaut she spent 18 days with her NEEMO9 mission crew on the Aquarius undersea habitat. She’s brought her love of space and art together through the founding of the Space for Art Foundation, and her first book titled “Back to Earth” will be released in Fall 2021.
