This image of the sunrise was taken by astronaut Reid Wiseman on the International Space Station.
NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman posted this image of a sunrise, captured from the International Space Station, to social media on October 29, 2014. Wiseman wrote, “Not every day is easy. Yesterday was a tough one. #sunrise”
Wiseman was referring to the loss on October 28 of the Orbital Sciences Corporation Antares rocket and Cygnus spacecraft, moments after launch at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The Cygnus spacecraft was filled with about 5,000 pounds (2,300 kilograms) of supplies slated for the International Space Station, including science experiments, experiment hardware, spare parts, and crew provisions.
The station crew is in no danger of running out of food or other critical supplies.
