Picture of the day
Mount Vernon Estate Mansion 2.JPG

George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) was the first President of the United States (1789–97), the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He presided over the convention that drafted the current United States Constitution and during his lifetime was called the father of his country. Mount Vernon was his plantation house. The estate is situated on the banks of the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia, near Alexandria, across from Prince George's County, Maryland.

Video taken from the International Space Station by NASA astronaut Jeff Williams. He used an Ultra High Definition video camera that he pointed at the planet 250 miles below; he talks about the beauty of the planet, the variety of things to see, and the value of sharing that perspective with everyone who can’t go to orbit personally.
