Monday, September 11 marks the 16th anniversary since the terrorist attacks on the United States.  Nearly 3,000 were killed (source).  But, the attacks sent shockwaves not just around the planet, but into space as well.

The only American not on Earth on that day in 2001, NASA astronaut Frank Culbertson, had a unique vantage point on the attacks. From the International Space Station, Culbertson snapped a photo of smoke streaming from the World Trade Center wreckage that day after two hijacked planes crashed into the Manhattan towers.
