After more than five months living aboard the International Space Station, astronaut T.J. Creamer spoke with collectSPACE on June 30, live from the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

Born in Ft. Huachuca, Ariz., Creamer considers Upper Marlboro, Md., his hometown. He earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Loyola College in Baltimore and a master's degree in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Creamer has logged 163 days in space.

Creamer launched aboard a Soyuz spacecraft on Dec. 20, 2009, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The Soyuz docked with the space station two days later, and Creamer joined the Expedition 22 crew. For the next 161 days, he lived and worked aboard the space station as a flight engineer and NASA science officer on Expeditions 22 and 23. He and his crew members supported three space shuttle missions that delivered the U.S. Tranquility module and its cupola, put the finishing touches on U.S. laboratory research facilities, and attached the Russian Rassvet laboratory and storage module. The Expedition 23 crew returned to Earth on June 1, 2010, with a landing in central Kazakhstan.
