Pic of the Day: View from the International Space Station

Expedition 24 Crew, NASA

"Peering out of the windows of the International Space Station (ISS), astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson takes in the planet on which we were all born, and to which she would soon return. About 350 kilometers up, the ISS is high enough so that the Earth's horizon appears clearly curved."

I love this. It reassures me that we're out there not just mooching about on Earth.

Such a calming photo. I wish my lunch break had that view.
