To infinity and beyond!

Ever wondered what your country looks like from space? For those of us who can’t handle the whole throwing up and no gravity thing, astronaut Tim Peake has saved us from all the horrors of an interstellar trip with these absolutely stunning pictures of Earth taken from way above.

Peake posted all these fantastic images to his Flickr account during his six-month mission up in the International Space Station with the European Space Agency back in 2016. The mind-blowing images shows several world capitals, iconic landmarks and natural wonders in all their earthy glory.

Take a look at some of the best below and see if you can spot where you live.
