Astronaut Alex Gerst captured from ISS New Zealand. Aotearoa is the Māori name for New Zealand. Its use is becoming widespread in the bilingual names of national organizations and institutions. The term was originally used by Māori in reference to only the North Island. Since the 1990s, it has been customary to sing New Zealand’s national anthem, “God Defend New Zealand”, in both Māori and English, exposing the name to a wider audience.
