If you have ever wondered about the astronaut’s view from their spacecraft, NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins gives you a very good answer. Even though, out of our planet, he still finds a way to connect with us by tweeting the images of the earth as seen from the International Space Station.
Mike is currently serving as a Crew-1 Dragon Resilience Commander. He and a team of 3 other scientists launched on November 15, 2020, and they spent six months on the Resilience spacecraft until the new team took over. This was Hopkins’ third trip to the International Space Station after previously serving as a flight engineer for Expedition 64.
Even though on a tough mission, Hopkins make sure to keep us updated what goes on on space. Through the images he shared on his Twitter account we were able to see how the space looks like from an astronaut’s point of view.
Sometimes on a day off, you just have to stare at the clouds. Beautiful views from Crew Dragon Resilience. pic.twitter.com/7D2AwiOGd3— Mike Hopkins (@Astro_illini) March 22, 2021
This incredible snapshots show how beautiful the space is is, and it’s really breathtaking to look at it from that point of view.
Daylight view is surely amazing, but the night time in space though… Just incredible!!!
