NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) paid their respects to the victims of the Paris attacks on Monday.
Mission Control in Houston announced the moment of silence to honour the 129 people who were killed in terrorist attacks around the city Friday night.
In a co-ordinated attack, eight men shot and killed people indiscriminately as Parisians were out enjoying a leisurely night in the City of Lights. Seven of the men blew themselves up.
“We were obviously shocked and saddened by what occurred there in Paris, and we stand with the people around the world in the fight…against terrorism,” said commander Scott Kelly who is taking part in a one-year mission aboard the ISS.
