The images were selected by staff in the Department of Earth Sciences and Remote Sensing at NASA’s Johnson Space Center and include Cuba and the Bahamas fall colors of Ottawa and moon rise over the southern Atlantic. More photos from the ISS can be found here.
NASA released a number of statistics on the ISS to celebrate its twentieth anniversary. 240 people from 19 countries have visited the International Space Station, on which an international crew of six lives and works.
The station travels at a speed of five miles per second and orbits the earth approximately every 90 minutes . This works every 24 hours on 16 orbits of the earth.
The ISS itself measures 357 feet from end to end, one meter shorter than a soccer field, including the end zones. Its power comes from four pairs of solar panels that deliver 75 to 90 kilowatts, and it weighs 925. 335 pounds with a habitable volume of 13. 696 cubic feet.
Something that NASA doesn’t mention is that the ashes of James ‘Scotty’ Doohan have been on the ISS for 12 years. Game developer Richard Garriott, the man behind the Ultima series, smuggled it on board in a laminated photo of the actor when he was one of the first space tourists to visit the station in 2008.
