There is something fascinating and intriguing about space and it’s probably the reason many kids dream about becoming an astronaut one day. And although few fulfill this dream, they are on a mission to bring all of us a little closer to something that seems so far away. Astronauts are blessed to explore the unknown and see spectacular vistas most of us will never experience in our lifetime with their very eyes.

American astronaut Robert “Bob” Behnken has been living aboard the International Space Station for a little over a month now. He has been sharing unique snippets of what daily life in space looks like and the mesmerizing view astronauts get to see on his Twitter account.

Behnken has recently posted two stunning pics from his temporary home at the International Space Station showing the boundary between night and day on Earth and in just a few days, it went viral and has been liked 60.6k times.

NASA astronauts made history on May 30th this year and became the first people to enter the International Space Station from a commercially-made spacecraft. Bob Behken, along with a fellow badass astronaut Doug Hurley, took off from Florida aboard SpaceX Crew Dragon. This high-stakes test flight mission called Demo-2, which took 19 hours, is the first step to a new era of commercial space travel since Elon Musk founded the rocket company 18 years ago.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of funny memes in response to this launch.
