The adorable image shows Leland Melvin, 50, who retired from NASA in February, decked in the traditional orange spacesuit worn by astronauts in their official photos and seated between his beloved pets, Jake and Scout.

All three appear to be having fun.

The image first surfaced after Adam Aton, a reporter in Missouri, shared it Wednesday with his followers and copied it to Melvin’s handle, @Astro_flow.

Melvin, Jake, and Scout quickly won the Internet.

Melvin responded in kind with a photo of the dogs, sitting quietly:

Today, Melvin, a native of Virginia, is host of Lifetime’s “Child Genius.” In 1998, Melvin was selected by NASA and served on two space flights, logging over 565 hours in space, according to his NASA biography. He then went on to travel the country as co-manager of NASA’s Educator Astronaut Program and was named as associate administrator for the Office of Education.
