A Day in the Life of an Earthbound Astronaut

Check out this awesome series of astronaut photos by Tim Dodd. The life of an earthbound astronaut can be a bit depressing.  Like a snail without its shell, Dodd depicts the everyday life of an astronaut who dreams to be back in space, where he belongs… and it’s hilarious!

Dodd bought the high altitude Russian spacesuit at the auction site last year and has been working on this project ever since.

“I’d been scheming how to best use the suit,” he writes on his blog. “I have been revisiting my childhood love for space and my obsession was growing stronger and stronger. It was only natural to use this suit to project the inner child in me, still dreaming about space.”
