T-3: A Peaceful Look Home

Have you ever enjoyed the beauty of nature on a long afternoon? For astronauts like Andrew Morgan, the work on the Space Station is intense, but it comes with some of the most relaxing views imaginable – our home planet, seen from low Earth orbit.

Even while he’s relaxing, though, Morgan is working. The photos he’s taking are breathtaking, and they’re also part of a research effort: the Crew Earth Observations investigation. His pictures will help us understand how our planet is changing over time.
