Astronaut Tweets Amazing Pictures of Earth From Space
By on February 5th, 2010

A few weeks ago we had told you about how a NASA Astronaut created history by tweeting from Space. However, it looks like we need to write another chapter in the history books. Why? Well because an Astronaut has tweeted some images of planet Earth from Space and shared it with us mere mortals who can only keep gazing into the sky.

Here are the pictures which were tweeted by the Astronaut from Space, thanks to IO9 and Mashable.

Some of these pictures are truly amazing, and to imagine that they were taken 100s of miles away from Earth make them even prettier. Technology has definitely advanced and being able to communicate and send images from space back to Earth is definitely exciting. Not that it was not being done before, but using a social medium to allow other’s to view them is definitely a big step ahead.

Aren’t these pictures truly amazing? What do you think about them? Let me know through your comments.
