This Image Of A Dice In Space Is A Haunting Metaphor For Life

Imagine a dice that'll never land? You'd be hard-pressed to find one on this planet certainly, but one astronaut has managed it by removing gravity from the equation. He then took this incredible picture of it:

The astronaut in question is a certain Reid Wiseman and he's just arrived at the International Space Station where he's been prolifically tweeting ever since he arrived just a few days ago.

Previously a Naval test pilot, Wiseman was then selected for astronaut training in 2009 and finally passed in 2011. He's now serving on the ISS as a flight engineer.

Whilst he's certainly not the first to tweet pictures from space (Soichi Noguchi arguably one of the most well known) he's definitely responsible for one of the most original tweets from space, perhaps even competing with the phenomenon known as the 'space selfie'.
