Andre Kuipers is a Dutch physician and ESA astronaut. Kuilpers is well known for becoming the second Dutch citizen to travel into space, upon launch of the Soyuz TMA-4 on 19 April 2004. After many years undertaking research work onboard the International Space Station, Kuipers decided to start a new hobby: photography. So, with a little help of a simple Nikon and the most incredible views from his window, Kuipers started to capture a lot of stunning pictures of our beautiful planet Earth and post them to his personal Twitter account. Here’s an amazing selection of some of the best pictures taken by Kuipers from space. Enjoy!
