Astronaut Tim Kopra, who holds the career absolutely everyone envies, greeted Boise from the International Space Station Tuesday.

Kopra used Twitter to share a photo of Boise — as seen from space, noting it as “a great place to live!” (Something residents already know, but come on, recognition from a NASA astronaut is noteworthy.)

Kopra, of Houston, Texas, is set to live on the space station for another 6 months, but he is welcome to move to Boise when he comes back.

If this makes you even more excited about space than you already were, check out more NASA images.
