There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew.
The International Space Station with ESA’s Columbus laboratory flies 400 km high at speeds that defy gravity – literally. At 28 800 km/h it only takes 90 minutes for the weightless laboratory to make a complete circuit of Earth. Astronauts working and living on the Station experience 16 sunrises and sunsets each day.
This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During “loss of signal” periods, viewers will see a blue screen. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.
