I always find myself in a state of awe and utter jealousy whenever I see another photograph from French spacecraft pilot Thomas Pesquet‘s time aboard the International Space Station. This week I would like to pay homage to his fantastic photography and open our eyes to the wonders of the universe we all live in.
Waiting can be such a bore
Pesquet took this shot while waiting for the arrival of new cargo, while the ISS flew over the peninsula of Florida – beats watching someone read the paper at the bus stop.
Sunrise with Solar Array
So I thought watching the sunrise over my back garden was pretty special, until Pesquet showed us his back yard.
That which protects us all
Pesquet reminds us about the thin layer of atmosphere that protects us all and keeps us safe from the dangers of space.
ISS creating a storm
Another great shot of the ISS over a brewing storm. Almost looks like the solar panel is stirring the pot.
Rome at night
This amazing photo of Rome at night, makes the whole city look like a spiders web.
Sandy Coast of West Africa
I’m not a massive fan of sand and how it gets everywhere. But I can’t deny the beauty of the sandy coast of West Africa.
Pesquet making space cool
One day – when we all have 250K for a ticket to space, or become really good at maths. We can all be as cool as Thomas.
