China's Shenzhou-12 astronauts have sent back stunning images taken out of small windows of the Tianhe space station module in low Earth orbit. They have been aboard the module since June 17, and have completed two extravehicular activities (EVAs), or spacewalks, and carried out a range of experiments.
