I agree, but you also forgot one critical fact, the speed of ISS as a satellite and earth rotation, while the photographer took that pic. That translates, he couldn't use very low exposure speeds! Because everything should be blurry, because of the ISS and earth speeds.
An example ; if we try to capture the moon, we cannot use long exposure speeds, because the moon moves fast, even for us from planet earth!
