Text: Can you explain how you take photos of Earth from the Space Station? - Adele
David Saint-Jacques: We have this beautiful bay window we call the Cupola. It's like a half-sphere of glass, basically. We can go in there and look in every direction, and we just take a normal camera. We take a normal camera and take photos through the window. We have cameras with different – you know, size of lens, so we can take more zoomed-in photos. And that's how we do it. So, it's just like taking a photo on Earth. You've just got to – you know, adjust for the lighting and take the best shots that you can.
