An image of hurricane Maria taken by ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli from on board the International Space Station on 21 September 2017. Paolo posted this image on his social media channels, commenting: "Hurricane Maria this morning: even from here it takes up all the horizon. Stay safe, our thoughts are with you".

Paolo’s third and last mission to the Space Station is named Vita, which means “life” in Italian, and reflects the experiments Paolo will run and the philosophical notion of living in outer space – one of the most inhospitable places for humans.
