From the vantage point of the International Space Station, astronaut Shane Kimbrough (@astro_kimbrough) captured this image over the Earth, writing “Looking west over the Red Sea, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. #EarthArt from the amazing space station.”
The space station serves as the
world’s laboratory for conducting cutting-edge microgravity
research, and is the primary platform for technology development and
testing in space to enable human and robotic exploration of destinations
beyond low-Earth orbit, including asteroids and Mars.
