Italian Astronaut Paolo Nespoli has been all over the world, literally. As an Expedition 26/27 flight engineer, he went to the International Space Station last December and spent 159 days working on a variety of projects and experiments. In some of his limited free time, he was able to take some amazing photos of our planet and on his way back home, captured the first photograph of a space shuttle docked at the space station. Just before he left Paolo tweeted if anyone wanted to join him for pizza. Welcome home Paolo… and yes.
