Astronauts aboard International Space Station share views of the Israel-Hamas war from above

Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station told Fox News their view of Earth without borders and living alongside people from other nations has helped them feel a sense of unity, even as the Israel-Hamas war rages.

“One of the things we experience up here is a different perspective of the world of our planet,” European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen told Fox News. “A lot of people call it the overview effect.”

“There’s not often a good reason why a border exists where it is,” he continued. “Because you experience the planet as a whole, you realize we’re all humans.”
