On Friday, October 1, the International Space Station had a great view of the Martinique Islands. 4 years ago, he presented us with beautiful photos on his social networks.
4 years ago, Thomas Pesquet did it again. On his second mission in space, this Friday, the French astronaut gave us new images of Martinique. During the Proxima mission carried out on the International Space Station from November 2016 to May 2017, he already provided images of Martinique and Guadeloupe.
This Friday, the International Space Station flew over our island. “Martinique! Like a burning desire to survey the island – I already promised myself during #Proxima,” he said on his Twitter account.
Martinique! Like a burning desire to roam the island – I’ve already promised myself that #Proxima ???????????????

Always very active on social networks, Thomas Pesquet also adds on Instagram: “Martinique! Some clouds hide Mount Bailey among other things, but not enough not to make me want to wander the island – I already promised myself during my first mission, And I only spent there… two days!”.
While waiting to return to it at a longer distance, from space the astronaut is observing our beautiful island.
Having left for space at the end of April, Thomas Pesquet will become commander of the International Space Station on Monday. He is scheduled to return to Earth at the end of October.
