The French centre of aerospace seen from great heights. #Toulouse , the "Pink City" lives up to its name. #Proximarchives

Like many in Europe, I am in quarantine too. Here is how I hope to cope with #QuarantineLife , but also why it is important to stay at home!

Ok, since people are stuck at home, let's start to travel a little bit. Armenia, Iran & Turkey intersect in a region covered in snow. Can you identify this city wrapped in white? I couldn't. Happy quarantine everyone. Stay strong & be safe. #savelives  #STAYATHOME  #ProximArchives

Turin, home of @fiatontheweb . They used to have a test track for the cars... on the factory's rooftop! Technically you can go jogging there nowadays, but not at the moment. My heart goes out to #forzaitaliat #STAYATHOME #ProximArchivesly '>#forzaitaliat #STAYATHOME #ProximArchivesly IT

Homing in on paradise. The Isles of Scilly, off the coast of Cornwall – as close as you can get to a tropical island… in England. 🏝️ #FridayIslands  #ProximArchives

Madrid Barajas Airport seen from space during busier times. You can almost see the aircraft type in these pictures, not the designation number though 😉 #avgeek  #ProximArchives  #airportsfromspace  #pilotsoftwitter  #pilotlife

Thinking of #Greece  whose independence day is today... with these two impressive constructions: the Corinth canal and Athens Venizelos airport ATH/LGAV  GR#ProximArchives  #airportsfromspace  #GreekIndependenceDay 

Connect Four: #Patagonia  has lakes and glaciers that intertwine with mountain ranges and forest, for a beautiful result #ProximArchives

Well, it’s not often that you see an entire country on one single photo, especially one that has as much to offer as Portugal! ??

After 2 months in space, I saw my first aurora! Magical green lights in the distance. Always something to look forward to on

Dernier #selfie  sur la terre ferme… / Last #selfie  on Earth for now… ? #Proxima

The view at night recently has been simply magnificent: few clouds, intense #aurora . I can’t look away from the windows

I took the #ParisAgreement  to the ISS: from space, climate change is very real. Some could probably use the view #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain

This is what a spacewalk is: 400km of void under your feet #Proxima

A timelapse of aurora into a sunrise. Wait for it, the first bright rise... is not the Sun! #proxima 

Space hamburger: tortilla, rehydrated beef, fresh onion from #HTV6 , lettuce & sauce. Tasted like heaven, flew like an angel ;)

The Moon's light reflects on snow. Combined with city lights we get the most beautiful night scenes seen so far. Torino, Milano and Lyon!
