The cupola, under the nosecone of the capsule, will provide a wide view of the Earth as they are in orbit for three days.

The cupola seems to have covers to protect it at the locations of the forward thrusters. The small sections only slightly inhibit the 360° view.

The whole mission is being covered as part of a Netflix documentary. The 5 part documentary will cover the crew, training for launch, and return home from the mission.
