International Space Station
Orbiting earth for almost 15 years.
1st Vine from space! Astronaut Reid Wiseman took this video from the International Space Station. It shows a single Earth orbit (would be about 90 minutes real time). The space station's orbit was parallel to the terminator, in which case the sun never sets. June 5, 2014.
Thank you Don Pettit for the privilege of sharing your window on the International Space Station. And, with our deep gratitude for being such a caring community, we wish all of you – our fellow passengers on Spaceship Earth - a happy 2014. Peace on Earth, and see you next year!
As we fly perpendicular to the terminator, we get an edge-on view of our Space Station's solar arrays. Taken September 18, 2013. KN from space.
It's launch day! Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket with its Cygnus cargo spacecraft is scheduled to lift off at 10:50 a.m. EDT. In this images, Antares is seen on the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) Pad-0A at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013 in Virginia. NASA's commercial space partner, Orbital Sciences Corporation, is targeting today for its demonstration cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. Photo Credit: (NASA/Bill Ingalls)
