The View From Above

What I’ll miss about Chris Hadfield’s time aboard the International Space Station: the photographs. Here, the Soyuz capsules attached to the ISS (one return vessel for mission 35, one lifeboat) glow blue in dawn light as the station passes Florida.

CMDR Hadfield, the commander of mission 35, returns to Earth tomorrow. I can’t think of one astronaut who has done more to bring ISS missions home to us here on Earth. Thanks, Chris!
