The American spaceman sent them from the International Space Station back in 2014, and as you can see, the view from up there is just as stunning as you'd expect. From spectacular sunrises and sunsets to a bird's eye view of Hurricane Arthur and the world's best view of the aurora borealis, Reid shows us the world we live in from a truly unique perspective. No wonder he has over 500k followers on Twitter.

looks like frost on the window in winter or like a algea ... this shows that some shapes and patters are universal for all sizes and all sort of material. pure math!
