The International Space Station was yesterday directly over Kenya, albeit for a short period.
The massive habitable satellite is the largest artificial body in orbit and can be seen with the naked eye from the earth surface. It is a programme by several space agencies, including NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA).
It was ESA’s female astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti who made the announcement.
Tweeting from space, this is what she said.
