Space Mission? That's No Reason to Stop Pinning!

Aug 23 2013 - 4:20am

We turn to Pinterest for beautiful everyday inspiration, and NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg's pins [1] are turning our imaginations to the sky as she uploads her daily views — from aboard the International Space Station. After launching into space on May 28, 2013, and landing at the ISS the same day, Karen is sharing her view of the universe to her Pinterest boards Our Home. Planet Earth. [2], International Space Station [3], and Science in Space [4], among others.

Sharing sunset views few other humans have seen, a look at the science experiments the ISS crew is currently working on, and the universe's best hairdos, take a look at why Karen should be your next Pinterest follow.
