Pacific Ocean

The International Space Station orbits into a dawn 261 miles above a cloudy Pacific Ocean in this image from April 2022.
Not only does the station crew snap beauty shots of the planet we call home, the crew also conducts a variety of Earth and space science, including observations of the world’s oceans.

NASA also has a variety of Earth-observing missions and even studies ocean worlds throughout our solar system.
