In space, 28,000 km/h, 400 km above Earth, Dutch astronaut and physician Andre Kuipers is currently on a 191-days research mission at the International Space Station. Lately, he’s been sharing with the world some of the most amazing views of our beloved home planet up from his perspective. Don’t feel surprised to know that the breathtaking imagery is shot using only his Nikon D3S and not a sophisticated satellite photo-snapping device. The spectacular views of the universe’s constant activity and the spectrum of colors it offers is absolutely magnificent.
Kuipers should be landing back to Earth after completing his expedition on 1 July 2012, till then, make sure to keep an eye on his twitter account for his unique photo-tweets of our planet. You can also check his frequently-updated blog and Flickr page.
