NASA – Space Station Room With a View

tranquility 525x393 NASA   Space Station Room With a View

June 26, 2009: The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) is about to get a new “eye-pod.” The Tranquility node headed for the space station early in 2010 will feature a viewing dome unlike any other window ever flown in space. The dome, called the Cupola, is literally studded with windows for observing Earth, space, and the marvelous expanse of the ISS itself.

I remember watching the tour of the ISS that was on youtube a while ago, and they got to this porthole window that they had a handcrank to hopen it with.  it was somewhat depressing to look through it because it was so small :(  Hopefully we’ll get many more image from the ISS after this node is installed!
