Just a few hours into the flight, the Crew-2 astronauts checked in with the world during a live broadcast straight from their spacecraft.
At the time, the spacecraft was approaching the coast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.
Mr Kimbrough said: “Were a couple of hours into the flight, making our second lap around the Earth.
“Right now we’re over, kind of, eastern-south Africa, so it’s really great looking out our window and we get to see some pretty cool stuff up here.
“We had an incredible launch. Hopefully, you got to watch it this morning. Right as the Sun was rising we took off.”
