Usually when we share something from the International Space Station (ISS) it is some awesome time lapse or incredible captures of earth and stars. Today however, our share is not as happy.
German Astronaut Alexander Gerst shows how the awful things we do on earth is seen from space, in a post and a tweet titled ‘My saddest photo yet ‘ Alexander shares a picture showing the rockets flying the the middle east skirmish (war?) in Gazza.
The post has been shared over 2,500 times and re-tweeted over 28,000 times. This does not thing but turn me really sad.
Please don’t turn this a political post, political comments will be erased!
