German astronaut Alexander Gerst took this crystal clear photo of the Cygnus-class resupply ship Janice Voss entering the Earth's atmosphere on August 17. I wish they could attach a thermal-safe pod with a camera inside to send along these ships—I want see video of the reentry from a close distance.
