In one single image, the two largest international scientific collaborations ever established are captured: on the ground, the seven-Member, 35-nation ITER collaboration; and 400 kilometres overhead a project bringing together the American, Russian, Japanese, European and Canadian space agencies.

The best time to sight the bright, slow-moving dot that is the ISS is in the hours after sunset and before sunrise—when the station remains sunlit, but the ground and sky are dark. This long-exposure photograph was taken at 6:07 p.m. on Thursday 8 December.
