The American then returned to the United States, speaking at a news conference in Houston, Texas on Tuesday, April 5th.

The Russian astronauts were “very dear friends, are and will continue to be”, he said. “I never worried about my ability to continue working with them.”

Mark Vande Hey, he said he did not see social media, but learned about his wife’s statements. “To date I have been very confident in our collaboration to take these tweets to anything other than addressing an audience other than myself,” he commented.

At 55, the astronaut now holds the record for 355 consecutive days in American space.
