It’s hard to imagine a better way to spend a day than floating around the world every 90 minutes or so, but that’s the life of an astronaut who’s providing the space-version of the all-request show, and pushing social media — literally — to new heights.
Soichi Noguchi of Japan brought a huge camera with him to use from the station’s new cupola observation deck, and sends images back through TwitPic. Each image sparks a conversation in several different languages.
Here’s a sample of some of his photos and commentary in recent days. Each has a link to the corresponding TwitPic page.
I’ve asked for some shots of Minneapolis-St. Paul, but the space station rarely makes a visit to “flyover country.”
