1413 Take An Interactive Tour Of The International Space Station
Columbus module of the International Space Station. Samantha Cristoforetti/ESA.

Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti came back down to Earth last month after 199 days and 16 hours aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Before Cristoforetti left, she took 15 photographs inside each module of the ISS.


These highly detailed images have now been stitched together to form an interactive panorama, which you can view here in fullscreen.

While the Russian modules of the ISS aren’t available to view just yet, you can explore in detail every other part of the Space Station.

Due to a one-month delay that extended her stay in space after the failure of two Russian rockets, Cristoforetti holds the records for the longest single spaceflight by a woman and for the longest uninterrupted spaceflight of a European astronaut.
