This Summer a special couple will receive a wedding gift that’s truly out of this world.
European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who has been aboard the International Space Station since November, posted photo to social media of two wedding rings floating in micro gravity.
The flight engineer from France tweeted that he carried in his personal items the wedding bands of two friends tying the knot this Summer.
“I’ll be back in time to be their witness,” he posted.
Pesquet and two Expedition 51 crew mates are scheduled to return to Earth in May aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
The 39-year-old was selected as an ESA astronaut in 2009 after logging more than 2,300 flight hours as a commercial airline pilot.
