But what could the ‘real’ caption be? Would it include words like ‘Nelson,’ ‘telescope’ ‘Moon’ or ‘wrong end’…?

NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, currently living and working aboard the International Space Station, today broke the record for cumulative time spent in space by a US astronaut – an occasion that was celebrated with a phone call from President Donald Trump.
Trump said: “Peggy is a phenomenal role model for young women who are exploring or participating in STEM education programs and careers,
“As I have said many times before, only by enlisting the full potential of women in our society will we be truly able to make America great again. When I signed the INSPIRE Women Act in February, I did so to ensure more women have access to STEM education and careers, and to ensure America continues to benefit from the contributions of trailblazers like Peggy.”
Whitson launched on Nov. 17, 2016, with 377 days in space already under her belt, and broke Jeff Williams’ U.S. record of 534 cumulative days in space. In 2008, Whitson became the first woman to command the space station, and on April 9 became the first woman to command it twice. In addition, she holds the record for most spacewalks by a female astronaut.
