The SpaceX Dragon's Journey to the Space StationOn December 5, 2018, NASA launched a 6,000-pound care package to the International Space Station aboard a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft. The spacecraft orbited Earth until it reached the station three days later. This image, taken by astronaut Alex Gerst, on December 8, 2018, shows the capsule passing over Manifa, Saudi Arabia. Manifa is home to one of the world’s biggest oil fields, a part of which is visible in the upper left of the photo. These man-made islands—each the size of 10 soccer fields— serve as “onshore” drill sites above offshore oil fields. The emerald waters also house more than 85 species of fish and 50 species of coral.
