“I don’t know any words, in any language, to match the beauty.”    – ISS Astronaut Alexander Gerst

“Sunrises. We experience 16 sunrises every 24 hours on the International Space Station as it takes us 90 minutes to do a complete orbit of our planet flying at 28,800 kilometers per hour.”     – 2016, ISS Astronaut Thomas Pesquet now retired
