Bahamas Blue | International Space Station


ESA Astronaut Thomas Pesquet of France: "The end of Proxima nears, less than five weeks to go. So much work to do and not enough time fully appreciate the Bahamas blue. The current return date is June 2, but like everything in spaceflight it can change."

"La fin de la mission Proxima approche : plus que cinq semaines. Encore tellement de boulot... et pas assez de temps pour graver dans ma mémoire les bleus des Bahamas ! Le retour sur Terre est prévu pour le 2 juin - mais dans le spatial le calendrier peut changer..."

The Bahamas, officially the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, is an island country of the Lucayan Archipelago consisting of more than 700 islands, cays, and islets in the Atlantic Ocean; north of Cuba and Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic); northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands; southeast of the U.S. state of Florida and east of the Florida Keys. Its capital is Nassau on the island of New Providence. (Source: Wikipedia)
