An image of Zvezda Service Module Array looks to be a work of art.

Scientists recently captured a work of art in space.

And NASA has released that amazing image - a photo of the Zvezda Service Module array on the International Space Station. Essentially a close-up snapshot, reflected lights from the sun bounce off of the object creating an artistic scene.

A quick glance makes the photo look more like a mosaic painting, the reflected rays serving as a highlighting agent to a section of the squares. The picture was captured on April 3rd, shot by a crew member of the Expedition 35.

The image was part of an external survey from the International Space Station windows.

The International Space Station is essentially an orbiting, habitable laboratory. Among its other benefits, the space station allows scientists to run experiments to see how people could lead a life in space.

Stationed 240 miles above the Earth’s surface, the laboratory has held a working, rotating crew since 2000. Astronauts usually work in the space station for six months on missions.
