Stunning NASA image reveals the huge Raikoke volcano bursting out of space while astronauts take the photo of the ISS

  • The Raikoke volcano is located on a desert island on a Russian peninsula
  • On June 22, 2019, the giant volcano erupted for the first time in almost a century
  • No one was injured, but the plumes of volcanic rubble were sent up to 10 miles high
  • Images from NASA satellites and astronauts on the ISS captured the event

The incredible power of Mother Nature was captured on camera by astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS) who erupted the huge Raikoke volcano.

The mountain is found in an uninhabitable peninsula of Russia and the huge eruption was conquered by the ISB in orbit for destruction from above.

Nobody was injured in the eruption where debris was thrown into the air in a huge plume.

The eruption occurred on June 22 and was the first time the volcano had moved in nearly 100 years.

The volcano sent a mass of ash and volcanic debris that flew up to ten miles into the air.

His big plume was captured on camera by astronauts and also by a series of NASA satellites.

& # 39; Multiple satellites – as well as astronauts at the International Space Station – perceived as a big plume rose, & # 39; said Nasa in a statement.

The ISS is an orbiting laboratory that houses astronauts from all over the world and orbits around the earth at 400 kilometers above the surface.

Several awesome images have emerged after ISS astronauts take photos from their unique vantage point.

Ricky Arnold, a NASA astronaut, has an Instagram account dedicated to his photos.

He previously placed the Aurora Borealis from above, which became NASA & # 39; s image of the week.

Famous astronaut Scott Kelly has also taken a famous photo of the Earth that was encased in red in 2015.

The ISS is an orbiting laboratory that accommodates astronauts from around the world and orbits around the Earth at 400 kilometers above the surface and has often made striking images of the Earth from space

WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE?

The International Space Station (ISS) is a $ 100 billion (£ 80 billion) science and engineering laboratory that spins a 400-kilometer radius above the Earth.

It has been permanently manned by rotating crews of astronauts and cosmonauts since November 2000.

Research conducted on board the ISS often requires one or more of the unusual conditions in a low Earth orbit, such as low gravity or oxygen.

ISS studies have done research into people, space medicine, life sciences, natural sciences, astronomy and meteorology.

The US space agency NASA spends around $ 3 billion (£ 2.4 billion) a year on the space station program, a level of funding endorsed by the Trump administration and Congress.

A commission from the American House of Representatives overseeing NASA has begun to examine whether the program should be extended beyond 2024.

Alternatively, the money could be used to accelerate planned human space initiatives to the moon and Mars.
