A look at the best photos from across the globe taken by an astronaut during a historic mission.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners get an exclusive digital edition of the astronaut’s photos from the International Space Station, and NASA’s astronaut Scott Kelly will also be on hand to take photos.
Scott Kelly will be taking photos of the International Astronaut’s Station on May 31st, 2020 at 10:30AM Pacific Time (1:30PM Eastern Time) with NASA astronaut Scott F. Kelly.
This photo is part of a special collection of space photos taken by astronaut Scott Fitzgerald Kelly in 2016.
NASA’s astronaut Michael Collins will be also taking photos from ISS.
Michael Collins, an American astronaut and former U.S. Navy fighter pilot, will be sharing his experiences aboard the International Satellites and Tracking Satellite System (ISSTS) as part of his ISS Spacecraft Photography series.
In this photo from August 2016, Michael Collins, American astronaut Michael Hopkins and Expedition 28 crewmember Mark Kelly are photographed aboard the ISS.
Collins has since retired.
Kelly will be joined by other astronauts from the space station to share their thoughts on Earth.
“I’m thrilled to be on the International space station, I’m really happy to be here with my crewmates,” Kelly said in the video.
“I just want to say to them, I love you all, I know you love each other and I love being here.”
Kelly is scheduled to spend 10 days aboard the station.
He has been a longtime resident of the space lab, with a tour of duty there from May 2016 to December 2017.
The International Space station is home to the Expedition 28 mission, which is the first to include a U.N. crew.
During the mission, Kelly will conduct the first spacewalk of a NASA astronaut on board, a mission that took place in January 2019.
After a six-month tour of the orbiting lab, Kelly returned to Earth on March 14, 2020.
A video posted by NASA (@nasa) on May 12, 2020 shows the first of the six-part mission to ISS.
Kelly and NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson will perform a spacewalks on the space platform.
While aboard the space shuttle, Kelly helped launch NASA’s first communications satellite into orbit.
He is also a longtime advocate for space exploration.
