And Now for Something Spectacular: “Jeff’s Earth” (4K NASA Video)
Here’s a powerfully moving super high resolution video shot from the International Space Station by astronaut Jeff Williams, to take us away from the nastiness for a few minutes. I highly recommend setting the resolution to 1440p and watching this full screen with all the lights turned off.
The first time you see Planet Earth from space, it’s stunning; when you’ve spent 534 days in space—more than any other American—it still is! On his most recent trip the International Space Station NASA astronaut Jeff Williams used an Ultra High Definition video camera that he pointed at the planet 250 miles below; here he shares some of those images, and talks about the beauty of the planet, the variety of things to see, and the value of sharing that perspective with everyone who can’t go to orbit in person.
