Astronaut takes outstanding pictures of Dubai from space
British ESA astronaut and test pilot Tim Peake’s Twitter location is a bit different to other people’s. It’s currently set to “Low Earth Orbit” as he works onboard the International Space Station for six months.
While he’s up there, he’s been capturing some incredible photos and videos, which have amassed him an impressive following of 526,000 followers on Twitter. He's gained a few more from Dubai lately, with his pictures of the city from the Space Station.
