His first space mission, with NASA astronaut Anne McClain and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, began Dec. 3 when the trio arrived aboard a Soyuz capsule. Among his highlights in orbit was a six-and-a-half hour spacewalk on April 8 — the first Canadian to walk in space since David Williams in 2007. In May, he used the station's Canadarm 2 for a "cosmic catch" of SpaceX Dragon cargo. That was the first time that feat was performed by a Canadian using the Canadian-built technology aboard the space station. Saint-Jacques has also performed numerous science experiments while aboard the station. Saint-Jacques says returning to gravity will take some getting used to, but he’s looking forward to seeing his wife and three children. 594328c114584fb98c8bcd756c5d15c0 Wed, 19 Jun 2019 16:26:36 +0000 Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques is set to return to Earth late Monday as his six-month mission comes to an end.
