nature is beautiful, from space

Still images taken by ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti on the International Space Station were joined together to create this timelapse.

The astronauts on the Space Station spend as much time as possible on science. During her 40-hour working week Samantha runs many experiments from Italy’s ASI space agency and ESA, and takes part in even more from scientists all over the world.

Samantha is living and working on board the International Space Station as part of the six-strong Expedition 42 and 43 crew. [Follow Samantha’s Mission.]

It does, and probably always will, blow our minds that astronauts are tweeting from space! From. Space.
