Marcus Wandt is set to return to the Earth after spending two weeks in space, in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
For those of us who haven't travelled 250 miles into the sky, Wandt shared a captivating video of the scenes above, Inverse reported.
"I must confess that I get a bit overwhelmed seeing so much at once and realising how fast we travel around the world and how small everything seems from here. The world is incredibly beautiful and something we need to take care of and look after," Wandt shared on Instagram.
The European Space Agency (ESA) posted a video captured by Wandt from inside the cupola.
In the video, the station is flying above Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. The Persian Gulf appears at the bottom right and meets the Gulf of Oman at the top left, leading into the Arabian Sea.
"If I just look up, all I see is the vast emptiness of space, and then you realise that we are quite small in the universe." Wandt shared.
Born in Sweden, Wandt landed at the station on January 20 as part of the Axiom-3 mission. In November 2022, he was chosen for the ESA astronaut reserve. This is his first time in space.
