ISS gets a Panoramic Space Window

Thanks to ESA (European Space Agency) the crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will have one more reason to make us insanely jealous: a panoramic dome module!

For the first time, astronauts will be able to gaze the wonders of space through seven large windows (including the largest windows ever to be sent to space.)

Each window is composed of multiple panes to ensure its safety even when the outside protection shutters are open.

I'm sure every ISS occupant will never forget Space Shuttle Endeavour mission STS-130 for bringing them this amazing piece of engineering.
