Art from the ISS

It’s always great when science can provide something that even the least interested anti-science folk can appreciate. Which is why photographer Christoph Malin’s time-lapse video from photos taken about the International Space Station is so spectacular.

The video shows cities, stars, lightning, auroras, meteors and other satellites blazing their trails against the Earth and sky.

Malin told Wired he himself shares a love of space. To create the video he used special software to “stack” images on top of one another, then “grabbed me a Red Bull, and worked through a night and 1 terabyte of ISS data.” It was a labor of love… and definitely worth it.
