An Apple in Space

A fresh apple floating freely near a window in the Cupola of the International Space Station is featured in this image.

Attached to the Harmony node, the Orbital Sciences Corp. Cygnus commercial cargo craft, which brought the fresh fruit, is visible at center. The bright sun, Earth's horizon and the blackness of space provide the backdrop for the scene.
