Tweeting from space?

I was over the moon when I first saw these “tweets from space” but now I’m even more intrigued by the mystery behind them. According to NASA, Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi is not currently on the International Space Station (ISS). And according to the brilliantly named website howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com (my go-to site when needing big-picture perspective), there are only six people in space, and they’re all located on the ISS.

So, from where is Noguchi tweeting? Do you know? If so, drop me a comment. You can follow Noguchi @astro_soichi.

(Kudos to Tina Roth Eisenberg for sharing Noguchi's photos on her Swiss Miss blog, which is where I first discovered them.)
