Room With a View
NASA astronaut Mike Fossum gazes through a window in the "cupola"—an observation module on the International Space Station—on September 11. Earth's horizon interrupts the blackness of space at the top of the frame.
With the recent return to Earth of three ISS crew members, Fossum is currently one of three people still aboard the orbiting laboratory. A new trio of spacefarers is slated to launch for the ISS on November 14, rounding out the Expedition 29 crew.
