  • Vines From Space Are Better Than Anything You Post

    Former Naval aviator and test pilot Reid Wiseman was selected to join NASA back in 2009. On May 28 of this year, the 38-year-old began his first mission in space at the International Space Station as part of Expedition 40/41. Besides being an astronaut, Wiseman also happens to be keen on social media, posting regularly on Twitter and Vine. 18 months after launching, many people are still not quite sure what Vine’s six-second video clips are best suited for. Well it looks like we have an answer—space videos. What, you’re not an astronaut? Good thing Wiseman’s mission last until November. After that it’s back to being bemused with the service.

  • Live HD Stream From The ISS Is Amazing [Video]

    Last month, 4 high-definition cameras were delivered to the International Space Station. The cameras were mounted on the outside of the ISS and live video feed has been streaming since April 30. Aside from offering an incredible view of Earth like you’ve never seen before, the program also tests the viability of commercial cameras for future space missions. If these HD cameras prove successful, millions can be saved by forgoing expensive, custom-designed space cameras. With governments cutting back on space programs, every dollar counts. Check out the live feed below and get more info on the High Definition Earth Viewing program at NASA.

  • 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. Shooting locations in order of appearance: 1. Aurora Borealis Pass over the United States at Night 2. Aurora Borealis and eastern United States at Night 3. Aurora Australis from Madagascar to southwest of Australia 4. Aurora Australis south of Australia 5. Northwest coast of United States to Central South America at Night 6. Aurora Australis from the Southern to the Northern Pacific Ocean 7. Halfway around the World 8. Night Pass more »
