Explanation: Have you ever seen a rocket launch — from space? A close inspection of the featured time-lapse video will reveal a rocket rising to Earth orbit as seen from the International Space Station (ISS). The Russian Soyuz-FG rocket was launched in November 2018 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, carrying a Progress MS-10 (also 71P) module to bring needed supplies to the ISS. Highlights in the 90-second video (condensing about 15-minutes) include city lights and clouds visible on the Earth on the lower left, blue and gold bands of atmospheric airglow running diagonally across the center, and distant stars on the upper right that set behind the Earth. A lower stage can be seen falling back to Earth as the robotic supply ship fires its thrusters and begins to close on the ISS, a space laboratory that celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018. Astronauts who live aboard the Earth-orbiting ISS conduct, among more practical duties, numerous science experiments that expand human knowledge and enable future commercial industry in low Earth orbit.

说明:你曾在太空火箭发射吗?如果仔细检视这部延时主题影片,可以见到从国际太空站,目睹一部火箭发射前往地球轨道的情景。这艘名为联盟号FG的俄罗斯火箭,是在2018年11月从哈萨克斯坦的拜科努尔太空发射场出发,推送进步号MS-10(亦名为71P)模组舱和其内载的补给品发前国际太空站。在这部90秒长的延时影片里,可见到左下角的地面都市灯火和白、斜贯过中心的蓝和金色大气辉光层、以及右上角往地球后方沉降的遥远恒星。而随着这艘无人补给船点燃推进器,往国际太空站靠近的同时,可见下级火箭掉回地球。在2018年拍照的当时,作为人类太空实验室的国际太空站,正在欢度它的20周年庆。住在国际太空站上的太空人,日常进行的工作中,也包括各式各样较实用面的科学实验,以拓展人类的知识,以及替低地球轨道上未来的工业生产奠基。
