Amazing pictures from space

This picture, in my opinion, doesn't even need a story behind it! The photo was taken by Italian astronaut Paulo Nespoli some 230 miles from the surface of the earth.


You can check out more amazing photographs by the same man on his Flickr - definitely worth a visit if you like this kinda thing.
