If you notice there are no stars in the background , that is because it is daytime and there is light pollution, it doesn't matter if the sky is black or blue , on Earth the sky is only blue because of light passing the atmosphere, but on the moon there is no atmosphere also there are no stars visible against the black daytime sky .

What about all the huge additional pollution these people will create just because their rich does not mean they can poison the atmosphere more than anyone else.

This goes to show that all you have to do is step back and view the bigger picture to see the beauty in something. Close up the world can be a horrible place but the views of our planet in the background here show the outstanding beauty of the orb we all live on

I am genuinely wanting to know why, if they are in space , they don`t have the heat and plasma on re-entry. Is the Pilot weightless at this height? I had been led to understand that you were only in Space when there was zero gravity...โ€ฆ.What would be the difference in altitude between Virgin Galactic yesterday, and the altitude at which the new crews to the ISS achieve zero gravity on launch. Thank you.

International Space Station
This shows just how tough this spacewalk is - no handholds around the Soyuz, very unstable work site... #NervesOfSteel

This time-lapse video shows the out-of-this-world ride Oleg Kononenko took on the tip of Strela boom operated by Sergey Prokopyev. The two spacewalkers are working outside the space station to inspect the Soyuz crew vehicle today. #AskNASA | www.nasa.gov/live

For the second time in history, a human-made object has reached the space between the stars. Now slightly more than 11 billion miles (18 billion km) from Earth, Voyager 2 has now left the Sun's protective bubble and is flying in interstellar space: go.nasa.gov/2GcxgCv #AGU18
