Flight to the ISS 2021

Yusaku Maezawa (MZ) will fly to the International Space Station (ISS) in December 2021 as a preparatory mission for his Moon flight. He has asked for suggestions for 100 things to do while at the ISS on his 12 day stay. I contributed one…

From the ISS Cupola check off items you can see from a pre-prepared checklist of man made objects said to be visible to the naked eye from space.

I hope you have time to just look at the Earth from space and what better viewpoint than the ISS cupola. This “task” may make the experience more fun and provide some feedback to those on Earth as to what a space farer can actually see from large to smaller man-made objects. The check list of items could itself be something you seek to gather from your social media followers prior to your flight and provide the results afterwards. Bon voyage!
