Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi wanted to make full use of the ISS’s internet connection, so he filmed some incredible videos of earth from space, uploaded them to YouTube, and then tweeted. Videos after the break.

Mr Noguchi was taking advantage of the Italian-made cupola installed on the new Tranquility module last month. The $26.1-million observation deck has one central window and six outer windows, which give panoramic views.
