A Year In Space 2016
Gaze down at the Earth’s sprawling surface from the International Space Station. Throughout 2016 astronauts aboard the ISS have been documenting the ever-changing face of the Earth, capturing vast deserts, isolated mountain regions and bustling cities. The grand space station travels between 205 and 270 miles per hour, orbiting Earth an incredible 15.5 times each day. Even though Earth has a 40,075km circumference, each orbit of the earth only takes 92.65 minutes in the ISS.
