International Space Station: View from SpaceX Crew Dragon | NASA

International Space Station: View from SpaceX Crew Dragon | NASA

This mosaic depicts the International Space Station (ISS) pictured from the SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour during a fly around of the orbiting lab that took place following its undocking from the Harmony module’s space-facing port on Nov. 8, 2021.

The four NASA SpaceX Crew-2 astronauts on board were Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur of NASA, Akihiko Hoshide of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) and Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency).

Thomas Pesquet was the fourth European astronaut to command the ISS and the first French astronaut to command the orbital laboratory.

The International Space Station (ISS) Program’s greatest accomplishment is as much a human achievement as it is a technological one—how best to plan, coordinate, and monitor the varied activities of the Program’s many organizations.

An international partnership of space agencies provides and operates the elements of the ISS. The principals are the space agencies of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan, and Canada. The ISS has been the most politically complex space exploration program ever undertaken.
