Beautiful Planet - Oh I so want to go to the ISS!
Indian Ocean Maldives “The sunny side of life” is a catchphrase used to attract tourists to the Maldive Islands. Well it certainly looks heavenly from the ISS. Time to order a large drink, you know, one with a lot of fruit and a little umbrella, then stretch out on a hammock and just enjoy life, watching what I can only imagine a marvelous sunset.

The privilege of viewing earth from space is only granted to a very select few. The real kick is, we’ve seen images like this before, created in special effect studios in Hollywood.
