“not many artists in this world are as creative as mother nature,” says european astronaut alexander gerst (@astro_alex_esa). gerst recently captured these images of the west coast of southern africa as the international space station (@iss) passed over during an orbit of our home planet. earlier today, gerst received the “keys” to command the space station during a traditional change of command ceremony. he is currently one of six humans currently living and working aboard the station conduct important science and research. their work will not only benefit life here on earth, but will help us venture deeper into space than ever before. credit: esa/nasa-a.gerst #nasa #space #astronaut #spacestation #views #earth #earthviews #mothernature #africa #planet #orbit #spacecraft #internationalspacestation #land #home #picoftheday
