NASA astronaut Victor Glover, one of four astronauts aboard the SpaceX crew dragon capsule, posted a video to Twitter of the stunning view from Earth on their first trip to space.
The video shows gloves sitting from a window soaking into the scene from an outdoor location. A pilot, serving as a pilot and second-in-command on the dragon, said the scene was amazing but the video “doesn’t do it justice.”
NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins and Shannon Walker and Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi are also members of the mission, called Crew-1.
This marks the second-ever crew flight of a SpaceX spacecraft.
Crew-1 astronauts are expected to spend about six months on the ISS, where they will work on a variety of science experiments and take a space walk to continue updates and repairs on the space station’s exterior.
