Taivānā dzimušais amerikāņu astronauts Kjells Lindstrēms (Kjell Lindgren) tāpat kā viņa kolēģi atpūtai un personīgām vajadzībām atvēlēto laiku labprāt pavadīja Starptautiskās kosmosa stacijas sekcijā, kas tiek dēvēta par kupolu un sniedz labāko iespēju vērot Zemi. Telpa ar kupolu ir arī ideāla vieta fotografēšanai, ko astronauti, tai skaitā Kjells, arī labprāt dara un ar iegūtajiem attēliem dalās sociālajos tīklos. Kjellam bilžu nav kosmiski daudz, tomēr ne vienā vien no tām pat grūti noticēt, ka redzama mūsu planēta. Un tā vien šķiet, ka pietuvinot kadru tuvāk, varētu redzēt citas civilizācijas.
