LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — U.S. Navy Lt. Commander G. Reid Wiseman, who was born and raised in the Baltimore area, launched from Kazakhstan to the International Space Station exactly one week ago, on May 29.

Since arriving on the ISS, Wiseman has been entertaining the Twitterverse with photos, anecdotes and a downright boyish excitement about the fact that he’s in outer space.

According to his NASA bio, Wiseman (who is 38) graduated from Dulaney High School in Timonium. His parents live in Hunt Valley.

He has been deployed to the Middle East twice, and was actually still overseas when he was selected for astronaut training. He reported to the Johnson Space Center in Houston in August 2009 and completed training in May 2011.

His job on the ISS is flight engineer.

If you are on Twitter and are not following him, you should be.
