Explore the International Space Station’s Tranquility module from all angles on your mobile phone or headset.
Node-3 Tranquility provides life-support for the International Space Station. Part of Tranquility is ESA’s Cupola observation module. A seven-window dome-shaped structure. This is where the Space Station’s robotic arm, Canadarm 2, is operated. It offers an amazing panoramic view of space and Earth.
Launched on Space Shuttle flight STS-130 in February 2010, Node-3 was attached to the port side of Node-1 Unity.
The view continues to fascinate space fans.
Just before ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti left the International Space Station she took up to 15 pictures inside each module. Now, the images have been stitched together to create this interactive panorama. She was thee for 199 days.
These panoramas offer a snapshot of the International Space Station as it was in June 2015
