NASA astronaut Victor Glover, one of four astronauts aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, posted a video on Twitter of the breathtaking view from Earth on his very first trip to space.
The video shows Glover sitting by a window imbued with the view from space. The astronaut, who serves as the pilot and second in command on the Dragon, said the sight was incredible but the video “doesn’t do it justice.”
NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins and Shannon Walker and Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi are also members of the mission, called Crew-1.
This is the second crewed flight of a SpaceX spacecraft.
The astronauts of Crew 1 are expected to spend approximately six months aboard the ISS, where they will work on various science experiments and take space walks to continue updates and repairs outside the station. spatial.
