A Selfie That is Out of This World

Taken at the International Space Station by astronaut Aki Hoshide (Japan), this awe-inspiring self portrait brings into one frame "the Sun, the Earth, two portions of a robotic arm, an astronaut's spacesuit, the deep darkness of space, and the unusual camera taking the picture." You'll want to click the image above (or this link) to view the picture dubbed "Orbiting Astronaut Self-Portrait" in a worthy larger format.
