2016: The Year in Space(20 images)

Out of this world is what this selection of space-related images from 2016 are. From Curiosity selfies to zinnia flowers grown in space and SpaceX successfully landing its Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship at sea, this year's imagery is stellar.

This stunning image of Earth was taken by a member of the Expedition 47 crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on May 31, 2016. The view stretches from northwestern China on the bottom into eastern Kazakhstan. The large lake in Kazakhstan with the golden sun glint is the crescent-shaped Lake Balkhash, the second largest like in Central Asia. NASA/UPI | License Photo
