Using recent photographs taken from the International Space Station (ISS), photographer Knate Myers assembled a video that shows a view that few people have seen in person. As the ISS orbits the Earth at 17,239 mph, the camera shows views of the Earth’s surface from more than 200 miles up, amid the stars.
With the retirement of the Space Shuttle program, the ISS is now more important than ever to the scientific community for research conducted in space. Larger than a five-bedroom house, the space station has orbited the planet more than 57,000 times, according to NASA.
