Text: Can you see natural disasters from the Space Station? - Jillian Tran
David Saint-Jacques: We can see disasters. For example, we can see flooding very easily, if the flooding is severe. I saw a major flood last week, in South America. We can see that rivers overflowed their banks. We can also see volcanic eruptions. We can see the smoke coming out of erupting volcanos. I’d say those are the biggest disasters we can see from space.
