Using high-definition NASA footage, a filmmaker has compiled a film made from timelapsed snippets of Earth as seen from the ISS.
As the ISS hurtles in orbit around the Earth, an eternal freefall at 17,100 mph, its cameras, and the astronauts on board, are capturing images and footage of our planet below -- much of which is from NASA, and therefore public domain.
It is this NASA footage -- taken from ISS expeditions 28, 29, 30, 31 and 34, shot from 2011 to 2014 -- that has become the subject of a new project by France-based filmmaker Guillaume Juin. Taking a series of stunning shots, he has created a supercut of time lapses, edited together into a short film he has called Astronaut.
