Victor Glover, who recently arrived at the International Space Station, shared his first video of the Earth taken from space and widely shared on social media.
The NASA astronaut was part of the Crew-1 mission which transported a total of four astronauts to the space station aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule on November 15.
“Looking at the Earth through the Dragon Resilience window. The scale of the details and the sensory inputs made this perspective breathtaking! Glover wrote sharing the video.
