Looking Out Of The Cuploa At Earth Below
ISS Cupola

Equipped with seven windows, the Cupola aboard the International Space Station probably has exponentially more beneficial facets than it has windows.
Seldom seen without at least two or three heads and bodies near the windows, the facility is either temporary or permanent home to robotics controls, computers and cameras among other hardware. And needless to say, it affords spectacular viewing ports for crew members.
