Happy New Year From the Crew of the International Space Station
by Colm Byrne on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013
I’m sure the crew of the International Space Station had a great view of the Earth as people around the world celebrated the New Year. Commander Kevin Ford and Flight Engineers Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn sent this video greeting for their best wishes for a happy 2013.
It only takes an hour and a half for the space station to travel around the Earth, that’s 16 times a day and they get to see 16 sunsets and 16 sunrises.
