Nyberg Photos From Space 24 Aug 13

Our Earth can be a violent, desperate place.

Sometimes it’s nice to take a broader view and be reminded the blue marble can also be a beautiful place to live.

Astronaut Karen Nyberg joined the International Space Station as a flight engineer for Expedition 35 back in May. She’s expected to stay until November.

Nyberg, a Vining, MN native, has taken to social media to share some amazing images from above Earth’s atmosphere.
