Is this a joke thread or a question thread? Because I know the answer...

In 1973, NASA flipped an image of Earth that was taken with South at the top, rotating it to put North at the top arguing that people would be confused otherwise. From there, it became an unofficial standard that "North" is "up" even in space. Same as normal maps - they didn't used to be aligned North up either.

Notherm Hemisphere of course. At least that's the smartest answer to give with respect to this question. Or it could also be depending on the area where you are located...:)

The North pole and the South pole is on the earths Axis irrespective of where you are.From space an astronaut can always see the earth on his onboard instrument which will show a tilt of 23.5deg thats the Axis of the earth
