Photos Taken From The International Space Station

There is nothing more humbling than looking up at the night sky and realizing just how amazing the world is. As mankind takes tremendous journeys to space, the rest of us on Earth can only imagine that experience. The International Space Station has been in the low Earth orbit for over 20 years and since then have captured the breathtaking views from way up above. Check out a different perspective and see what life is like from above.
