A record-breaking NASA astronaut talks about taking photos from space—especially of U.S. national parks—his record, and the possibility of traveling to Mars. NASA astronaut Jeff Williams has spent 534 days in space, more than any other American astronaut. While on the International Space Station, Williams pursued his passion of photography, and this year he focused on national parks in celebration of the Park Service's centennial. When fellow astronaut Peggy Whitson embarks on her next space mission, in November, she'll have a chance to surpass Williams's spaceflight record.
