Epic View Of Earth From Space [Time Lapse Video]

It seems as if these is a new time laspse video of Earth shot by the International Space Station released each week. Some are better than others but I still watch them all. It’s transfixing. Of all the time lapse videos I’ve seen, probably dozens if not more, this one is hands down the best. It was shot by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011, at an altitude of around 350 km. That’s about 30 times the altitude airplanes cruise at. It is a view that few of us will ever see but everyone can appreciate. What makes this video great is that it was shot in crystal clear HD, and also refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc.

The Nixon Base Watch Is Retro Perfection

The first digital watches were released in 1972, used battery-draining LED displays and were priced far too high for most consumers. But by the mid-1970s, LED displays were replaced with more convenient LCD displays and soon enough, everyone was wearing digital watches. As digital watches became more and more ubiquitous,…
