Space Selfie - Akihiko Hoshide, JAXA Astronaut - Sep 5, 2012

This is my favourite selfie. It has so many impressive things that make it amazing.

  • First of all it’s in space
  • It showcases the spacesuit in all its glory, tag and lights and all
  • You see the space camera, the Earth, and the ISS all in the reflection on the suit
  • Over the astronaut’s shoulder it is the infinite blackness of space
  • Over the other shoulder is the sun as a light source and the earth as a mirror to focus that light.
