Default Orbital photography

This photo from the space station's cupola has to be one of the best I've ever seen:

Gazing Out The Window - NASA Watch

Would love to have that as a poster


Edit: full res pic is on wikipedia:

What an incredible picture. I love how she is looking out with that expression.
I really wish it was higher quality.

this song started playing on my Pandora station:
YouTube - Night Song- Jon Schmidt - piano instrumental
I thought it fit surprisingly well with the photo and the emotions

I don't know, how big of a cannonball will a gentle rain of burnt-up caveman dust make? J/K.

Yeah, it would be so great to be up there right now.

Nice, I remember reading about that part when it was due to be launched.
Beautiful photo

I wish I could be there... I want to go into space (real space, not suborbital) at some point...
