Space sunrise taken by ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet on the International Space Station showing Earth's atmosphere. Thomas commented: "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 km/h. Of course we don't notice most of the sunrises as we are working inside, but every now and again I can take a picture."
