Is This The Farthest Spot From Which A Photo Of Valletta Has Ever Been Taken?

Article Featured Image

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who works at the International Space Station and recently made the news for voting from space in last month’s French election, has shared a stunning satellite photo of Valletta, crediting ESA and NASA. That’s right, those two space agencies.

Pesquet captioned the photo, which was taken on 4th May, with, “The capital of Malta with its magnificent fortress on steep coastal cliffs.”

The 39 year-old Frenchman was selected as an ESA astronaut eight years ago back in May 2009, and is currently in the last stretch of a six-month mission to the International Space Station. He’s amassed a total time of 12 hours and 32 minutes worth of spacewalking, which is equal parts terrifying and awesome.
