Various views of our globe obtained by space agencies and astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) have frequently astounded us all. Many astronauts use social media sites to share photos of different lovely spots on Earth that they have shot from orbit.

Similarly, French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, now aboard the International Space Station, recently shared some stunning photos of Italy's floating metropolis Venice. Pesquet frequently publishes breathtaking images of Earth obtained from space. 
After the Italian authorities banned cruise ships from entering Venice's historical centre, the European Space Agency astronaut uploaded numerous photos of the ancient city in a recent post.

In a lengthy Instagram post supporting the ban, the French aerospace engineer stated that this renowned city's 'unsung heroes' are the 'thick wooden planks. 
"Most of us know Venice for its aquatic canals, bridges, and melodious gondoliers, but the unsung heroes of Venice are really substantial timber structures."
