Opening the space frontier and our eyes

Via comes a pointer to the video below by Christoph Malin who combines wonderful imagery of earth with a lecture by astronaut and former ISS crew member Don Pettit about taking photos from the station.

This is a tribute to the International Space Station Program as well as Dr. Don Pettit, NASA Astronaut and ISS Astrophotographer. It can not be emphasized enough, how Dr. Pettits innovative photographic work and his passion has changed the way we see earth from space. Accompanied with great info on the challenges of astrophotography aboard the ISS by Dr. Pettit, the shortfilm features a great compilation of 4 timelapses (“intro”, “startrails”, “fisheye” and “aurorae”). Now welcome aboard the ISS – enjoy stunning photography and timelapses from the Space Station!

Here is a posting by Malin about the making of the video: Earth from above – a little background info on my new ISS shortfilm documentary – Christoph Malin
