A Mirror Self-Portrait Taken 200 Miles Up

Here’s a photograph we’ve all taken… only in our bathroom mirror. NASA astronaut Michael Fincke shot this photograph with what looks like one of the Nikon DSLRs on board using a reflective-portion of the International Space Station. This means he shot a self-portrait roughly 200 miles above the ground while zipping around the planet at 17,000 mph.

    Amazing!  I can’t believe he hand-held that shot going 17k mph. :p

    Nice, but we can’t see his $1000 fireproof underwear,  what kind of sexting is this?
