Imaging Earth from space is a favourite pastime for astronauts on the International space Station.

The International Space Station was orbiting 253 miles above northern Pakistan when this photograph was taken of a portion of the Himalayan mountain range.

Despite humankind's scientific prowess there are still many phenomena that defy explanation or a common agreement on why something happens.
