Terry Virts, pilot of the space shuttle, "ENDEAVOUR" (OV-105), opened the windows of the newly installed cupola one at a time early Wednesday, giving spacewalkers Robert Behnken and Nicholas Patrick an early look into the room with a view that they had helped install on the International Space Station.

The cupola's fully opened windows look down on the Sahara Desert in this image that was "tweeted" from Space by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (i.e., JAXA) astronaut and Expedition Twenty-Two flight engineer, Soichi Noguchi.

Hey, folks, ain't this grrrrrr-REAT?

Just think - - - , this is what it's like from Outer Space to look down on Earth!

Man, this is so SUPER cool!!!
