The SpaceX launch, assisted by NASA, made history by becoming the first time a commercial aerospace company has carried humans into Earth’s orbit.
That’s Hurley on the left, and Behnken on the right, above, before the launch, obviously.
The duo have been carrying out a number of tasks and experiments since their arrival at the International Space Station, and Hurley has also been snapping some great photos of what can be seen from space.
Fresh off celebrating the Fourth of July (or Independence Day), Hurley shared these images to Twitter yesterday:

If you would prefer to have the images laid out one by one, you’re in luck:
You know which image is which city, right? We can’t spoonfeed you all the time.
Clearly, there wasn’t a great deal of load shedding going on (or is it load reduction?).
Sorry, Durban – maybe your time is still to come.
It’s not just South Africa that Hurley has trained the lens on, with Digital Trends picking out some of his other recent photos.
Below each photo is the text Hurley posted:
The Flat Earth crew must be hating these photos.
Cue tinfoil hat comments.
