Astronaut Don Pettit is actually one of our favorite photographers, and we especially love his extremely long exposures--makes space look completely wild, almost like a videogame. See more of them here.
Today is the Images of the Week: Space Edition. There's this long-exposure shot, but also the Space Shuttle trudging past the Statue of Liberty, Venus passing over the sun, a gorgeous shot of the Sagittarius constellation, and many more. Also polar bears frolicking. Enjoy!
