Noguchi has been uploading images of Earth regularly to his Twitter, sometimes multiple times a day. Clearly a fan of photography and the glorious vistas very few people have been able to enjoy in person, Noguchi’s photos are the next best thing to seeing the views from the ISS in person.
Below are a few selects from his feed:
Additionally, Noguchi has also been regularly uploading videos to his YouTube Channel showing how he and the other astronauts complete certain tasks. In addition to the tour of the station posted below, he has also shown a couple of different meals that he has eaten as well as an instructional video on how to cook in space.
Noguchi has uploaded a plethora of amazing images of Earth and he hasn’t even been on the ISS for a month. His current mission is slated to last six months, so it’s fair to assume that he will publish many more photos before he returns to Earth. To continue to enjoy his images, make sure you follow him on Twitter.
