Mount Everest, Seen from Space!

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

One under-appreciated space asset is the photography skills of the Russian cosmonauts on board the International Space Station. They are extremely skillful photographers who don’t get the same recognition as their astronaut counterparts in their Earth observation skills. In particular, they have taken some stunning high-oblique shots of objects close to the horizon, with almost an 3-D effect.

One example is our lead image of Mount Everest in Nepal, which was taken by cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev (@OlegMKS), who was a flight engineer ISS Expedition 39/40, and Expedition 55/56. Below, is another view of Earth’s highest mountain, taken by Sergey Rryazanskiy (@sergeyISS), who was on ISS Expeditions 37/38 and 52/53.

These images were brought to our attention by Chhabi R. Pokhrel (@crpokhrel) on Twitter, who lists himself as a mountaineering enthusiast and space geek.

On Nov. 26, 2003, astronauts on board the International Space Station took advantage of their unique vantage point to photograph the Himalayas, looking south from over the Tibetan Plateau. The perspective is illustrated by the summits of Makalu [left (8,462 meters; 27,765 feet)] and Everest [right (8,850 meters; 29,035 feet)] – at the heights typically flown by commercial aircraft.

  30. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!

  31. The core of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not settle properly with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do nicely to help fill in those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly end up being fascinated.
