This is the first Instagram ever taken in space

Imagine searching for location settings on Instagram... in space! Astronaut Steven R. Swanson of Expedition 39 might've encountered that problem yesterday, when he made history by taking the world's first-ever Instagram shot in space.

Taken sans filter aboard the International Space Station, the photo of Swanson by Swanson (yes, it's a selfie!) shows him in the space station's observatory, with the caption: "Back on ISS, life is good." No hashtags, like for likes, or follow for follows were included with the photo -- which was posted on the ISS's Instagram feed.
