Incredibly beautiful landscapes.
American astronaut Jack Fischer, furrowing the expanses of space to the international space station (ISS) at a speed of 28,164 km/h, makes the stunning beauty of its pictures of our planet from the dizzying heights (402 km)! Fisher provides them with the hashtag #earthshapes and puts in his Twitter account @ASTRO2FISH. Here is a selection of his most impressive photographs of the blue planet.
1. “They call it the sea of Red, but there is so much blue blue. I’m amazed at how bright the paint looks from space!”
