Dubai Distributed


ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet is spending six months on the International Space Station as part of his second mission “Alpha.” In his free time, like many astronauts, he enjoys looking out of the Cupola windows at Earth. This collage of pictures shows Dubai, United Arab Emirates, made from around 40 pictures mapped together, digitally rotated and assembled into this large collage. The images were taken on May 26, 2021.

Pesquet asked to have the series of highly zoomed-in pictures aligned into this collage to show the area in detail. The International Space Station flies at roughly 400 kilometers altitude, so Pesquet uses the longest lenses available onboard.
