Astronaut Jeff Williams Is About To Break A NASA Record

Aug 10, 2016 at 2:07 PM ET

Astronaut Jeff Williams has spent the last 500-plus days mostly alone, thousands and thousands of miles from every stupid human being on Earth. He is truly living the dream.

On August 24, Williams will set the record for most time spent in orbit by an American astronaut.

We are extremely jealous of how much time he gets to spend being a nerd all alone in a capsule.
